Hayward Gallery, London

Client: South Bank Corporation
Architect: Dan Graham

We were appointed by the South Bank Corporation to undertake the design of the building services for this renowned art gallery in London.

Our challenge was to create hidden systems to enhance the visitors experience.

The scope was for a new glazed entrance, designed by the prolific New York artist Dan Graham, reception, lobby, restaurant and café areas.

Mechanical Design:

  • New VRF type heating and cooling provided to the fully glazed gallery areas from high level on the floor below
  • New mechanical fresh air supply and extract ventilation from air handling plant located in the basement below
  • Underfloor heating to assist in offsetting high heat losses due to the extent of the glazing
  • Dedicated ventilation to the café and breakout areas

Electrical Design:

  • New electrical infrastructure to support additional loads from gallery and café
  • New lighting and power throughout
  • Full IT/AV/Security integration
