The prestigious art foundation moved to Hoxton Square in Londons East End and Architects Theis and Khan designed a contemporary, exciting space for the foundations collection of Portuguese and British art.
The building has a glass front, making the exhibition space clearly visible from the street. Sapphires Crystal structural glass balustrade with Onyx stainless steel handrails were applied to the stairs and laminated glass (which avoids the need for a handrail) was used for the atrium balustrade.
