A £20 million renovation of 5 historic buildings in London will create an innovative way to work and sell for professionals in the visual arts.

Opening in May 2020, Cromwell Place is a new art center and membership organization with 14 gallery spaces set in the heart of South Kensington’s museum district. A suite of offices, hot desking facilities, meeting rooms and viewing rooms will add flexible space for members.

Designed by Buckley Grey Yeoman, Cromwell Place will feature a Pavilion Gallery (1,500 sq. ft in size), a large contemporary exhibition space with polished concrete floors. The Club Room, designed by Lambart & Browne, with its spectacular mirrored interior, will provide bar and a light food for members, clients and guests.

Membership for Cromwell Place is exclusive to accepted galleries, dealers, advisors, collectors and art professionals, while the public will be able to browse and buy artworks at the space from Wednesday to Sunday each week.  

The space is set up for UK and international members to expand their programs in Central London, with the bonus of on-site art storage.

According to the Evening Standard, around 40 have already signed up for 80 memberships, including antiques specialist Oliver Hoare, old masters dealer Baring Fine Art, Edinburgh’s Ingleby Gallery and New York gallery Alexander Gray Associates.
