Whitehall Museum, Surrey

Client: Sutton Council

Architect: Curl la Tourelle

Built around 1500, Whitehall Museum is a timber-framed, Grade II* listed Tudor building in the heart of Cheam Village. It contains exhibitions telling the stories of the people who lived at Whitehall and the history of the local area. The project involved the refurbishment and expansion of this architecturally-sensitive building. In addition to replacing the heating system, to make it more energy efficient and easier for the occupants to control, a new interpretation design brings the museum to life. Accessibility to the building ha been significantly improved with full wheelchair access being provided to the majority of the building through the addition of new ramps and a lift housed within a modern extension.
