Geffrye Museum seeks designer for new “home” gallery

The London museum is seeking an exhibition designer to develop the new gallery, which will open in 2019.


London’s Geffrye Museum – which explores domestic history – is looking for a designer to work on a new gallery based on the theme of home.

The new gallery is planned as part of the museum’s capital development project – Unlocking the Geffrye. It will be located on the lower-ground floor of the Grade I-listed almshouse that the museum occupies and will be approximately 200m2.

The Geffrye says the new gallery will “engage the museum’s audiences further with our rich collections of domestic objects, allow us to put more of these collections on display and expand on our theme of home – socially, geographically and thematically”.

The appointed designer will work with the museum’s collections, learning and engagement team and work on the gallery design through to its completion in 2019. The contract is valued at £30,000-£50,000.

The deadline for applications is 11 January 2016. For more information visit

The project is scheduled to start in March 2016.
