Stanton Williams and Asif Khan are to work with architect Julian Harrap and landscape design consultant J&L Gibbons to design the Museum of London at West Smithfield.

Early stage concepts include a new lifted landmark dome, which will create a light-filled entrance to the museum, as well as spiral escalators transporting visitors down to the exhibition galleries, flexible spaces, and a new sunken garden.

The Museum of London's director Sharon Ament said: “Over the coming months, we will work together to design a new museum for London and Londoners, which will be one of the top visitor attractions in the capital.

“Our project sparked the imagination of truly remarkable architects whose hard work and talent produced astounding submissions.”

"Early stage concepts include a new lifted landmark dome, which will create a light-filled entrance to the museum."

Stanton Williams and Asif Khan will now work with the team at the museum to develop its initial concepts into a complete design. Its stakeholders include the GLA, City of London, and the local Smithfield community

Stanton Williams' director Paul Williams said: “We are immensely excited about being given the opportunity to work with the Museum of London on this wonderfully challenging project, participating in an endeavour that will transform an area of London that has such a rich history, but sadly has been in decline for many years.”
