London’s Natural History Museum is looking for a design team to create a new members’ room at the museum.

The NHM says it is looking for an architect and principal designer to work on the project – ideally with experience in the museum/cultural/heritage sector.

It says it is also looking for designers with experience working in Grade I- and Grade II-listed buildings.

A shortlist of between three and six design teams will be drawn up, the museum says, with one going forward to work on NHM’s “vision” for the new members’ room.

The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 10 April. For more information and to apply, visit

The project is the latest in a series of design overhauls at the NHM.

Most recently, Casson Mann announced at the start of the year that it is set to overhaul the Hintze Hall entrance space – a move that will see “Dippy the Diplodocus”, the museum’s famous replica dinosaur skeleton, replaced with a blue whale.

The Hintze Hall redesign project is set to be completed in 2017.

Last year, the NHM unveiled a new permanent Volcanoes and Earthquakes exhibition, created by Designmap.
