Further Information

The project was commissioned by the Museum of London and the London Docklands Development Corporation to refurbish the three remaining bays of the now redundant Grade 1 listed West India Dock Warehouses. The site is opposite canary wharf in the heart of London’s Dockland. Purcell Miller Tritton were responsible for all of the repairs and new interventions that make up the fabric of the new museum. The museum houses the Museum of London’s collection of docklands artefacts to tell ‘the story of the docks’. The refurbished building itself also contributes significantly to the exhibition and elements from the building’s own past, such as winches and hydraulic jiggers, have been reinstated. New facilities include a ground floor restaurant and retail facilities, first floor library and archive facilities, a third floor auditorium and twelve galleries. The basement houses classrooms and education facilities and the building has full disability access.
