The Parabola, Kensington

Formerly the Commonwealth Institute building on Kensington High Street, the Parabola is a Grade II Listed Building recently refurbished into the new Design Museum.  The memorable central feature of the hyperbolic parabolic roof, resembling a giant manta ray in full flight, is framed by mature trees that were protected throughout the intense development works.  Additionally, significant semi-mature trees up to 18m in height were placed around the finished Museum, creating a unique green place in the heart of the city.
