Bermonsdey's Fashion House


Originally a 1950’s garage, this building was converted to form a museum, design studio, offices, café and bookshop with a copper-clad roof extension enclosing eight private flats/ duplex units.

Features inside the building include a mezzanine gallery, a mosaic floored entrance hall and a double height yellow hallway with barrel vaulted roof lights, providing access to the residential accommodation.

The conceptual design was carried out by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorretta for fashion designer Zandra Rhodes.

The museum won the Civic Trust Award in 2000.
