Host your event in London’s newest venue located on Kensington High Street with beautiful views over Holland Park. The stunningly refurbished 1960s building is the only public building designed by John Pawson, and features an incredible hyperbolic paraboloid roof.
The Design Museum features five beautiful spaces for hire: the Helene and Johannes Huth Gallery, the atrium, the Bakala Auditorium, the Chumsri and Luqman Lounge and the Ulm and Bauhaus Room.
The Helene and Johannes Huth Gallery is located on the second floor of the museum with views over Holland Park.

The Ulm & Bauhaus Room has a capacity of 40 (theatre style) and 30 (cabaret style) and is fitted with seating and a monitor for presentation requirements. Depending on how many guests you anticipate on hosting, the room can host coffee/tea/refreshment catering as well.
Designed by Universal Design Studio, and overlooking Holland Park, the Chumsri and Luqman Lounge complements John Pawson’s original brief for the Design Museum.
