The Victoria & Albert Museum in London is looking to appoint an architect to work on a new members’ room at its site.

The V&A wants to open a new members’ room on the second floor of its South Kensington building. The room will overlook the new Exhibition Road entrance, which is set to open in Spring 2017.

The V&A says: “The museum’s membership is growing and it needs to provide a beautiful space which is able to cater to their needs.

“The ambition is that the design of the members’ room will take advantage of the views over the new Exhibition Road project, creating a unique space which reflects the spirit of the museum.”

The museum is looking for an architect to act as lead consultant for the project, and says the remainder of the design team will be appointed through its existing frameworks.

The project is budgeted at £1.3 million and the V&A hopes that construction will finish by November 2017.

The deadline for receipt of tenders or requests to participate is 2 October. For more information visit ted.europa.eu.
