We are thrilled to announce that Natural History Museum was today given the go ahead from the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea with unanimous approval, to transform its five-acre gardens into an exemplar of urban wildlife research, conservation and awareness – galvanising a far reaching, national drive to reengage people with the natural world and urban biodiversity, which it warns is under threat like never before. A huge congratulations to our wonderful team who have contributed to this special project, and to our fantastic project landscape architects J & L Gibbons. More on the project here.

Natural History Museum’s Urban Nature Project

We are honoured to be working closely with the Natural History Museum and Landscape Architects J&L Gibbons on the ambitious Urban Nature Project, to deliver a scheme of national significance that will transform the Museum’s five acre gardens in South Kensington introducing much needed science, education and visitor facilities.

When complete, the Museum gardens will take people on a journey through a changing world. They will provide a fully accessible opportunity for visitors to connect with nature and explore the incredible diversity of life on Earth. Dippy, the Natural History Museum’s iconic diplodocus, will have pride of place; in a newly commissioned cast, Dippy will overlook the new east gardens which will tell the story of the Earth’s history. With plants and fossils reflecting each geological era, visitors will appreciate – visually – how old our planet is and learn about the profound impact humans have caused in a short space of time. A new Garden Building and Learning and Activity Centre will provide amenities for visitors, volunteers, researchers and maintenance teams.

Along with our multi-disciplinary team including J&L Gibbons, Mace, Pentagram, Engineers HRW and Max Fordham, we have enjoyed the challenge of bringing to life a walk through over 500 million years of the earth’s history, from the pre-Cambrian era to the present day, translating vital messages about human’s impact on nature and the role we all have to play in revitalising urban bio-diversity today.
