Museum of the Home to reopen on 12th June after major redevelopment by Wright & Wright Architects
The Museum of the Home, in Hoxton, London, will reopen on the 12th June following a 3 year transformative redevelopment by Wright & Wright Architects.
The project revitalises an assemblage of 300-year old almshouses and gardens, consolidating the historic building with contemporary elements to create a sustainable and engaging public space.
Wright & Wright’s architectural synthesis of new and old reflects a reframed curatorial
approach intended to make the Museum more appealing to a wider audience by addressing contemporary domestic issues such as homelessness and fluctuating family structures. It actualises the Museum’s refreshed identity which aims to present a more nuanced understanding of the idea of home and its resonance in society.
The Museum will launch a dynamic opening programme on site and online including new artist commissions, exhibitions, installations and partnerships. The programme will invite visitors to explore a world of thought-provoking ideas, experiences and topics related to the ever-changing meaning of home and ask visitors to consider ‘What does home mean to you?’.
