Foyer Imperial War Museum

North Manchester 2008

magma architecture were asked to re-organise and refurbish the ground floor and first floor of the Imperial War Museum - North, Manchester including the shop, orientation, learning studios and corporate hire facilities. The shop was moved into the route of the visitor to become an integral part of the visitors experience. The simple cut-rectangle shop furniture is open and cohesive. The learning studio can be opened to the foyer with large rotating walls. They contain coloured doors and shelves that create an enviroment for kids and school classes. The corporate hire facilities are on the first floor. They can be subdivided into two rooms and provide a contemporary communication and presentation system.
