Natural History Museum Urban Nature Project


The Urban Nature Project is a pioneering scheme to drive forward the agenda for increasing biodiversity in our cities. The context of the Natural History Museum, with its Grade I Listed Waterhouse Building, meant we had to utilise our extensive heritage skills to ensure the proposals would enhance the setting of the listed building, whilst still being fully accessible – a key requirement of the project. Once fully implemented, this project will help to educate generations of people on the importance of biodiversity in urban areas with 300 scientists on site, 5 million annual visitors and the Museum’s truly global reach.
