Roald Dahl Museum, Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire

The project was to take a collection of buildings behind a former coaching inn and create a museum and visitor centre dedicated to the life and works of Roald Dahl. Two of the builings were found to be Tudor and were carefully renovated to form the new offices for the Roald Dahl foundation. A more modern derelict workshop was demolished to make way for a new gallery and archive room. The only access to the site was through the old coaching inn entrance off the high street and there was very little space to store materials on site.

Completed 2005.
