Aquariums - Horniman Aquarium

The Horniman Aquarium is housed in a new purpose built gallery located in the basement of the Grade II* Listed Horniman Museum in London. An inventive and innovative display of exotic fish and other sea creatures aimed at young museum goers, the gallery has attracted over 110,000 visitors in its first five months.

With this project the key was to find a balance between creating a high quality habitat for the animals that is easy to maintain and still attractive to the visitor; here the tanks are designed to allow good visibility and interaction with the museums younger visitors. The fact that the aquarium with its live exhibits and complex life support systems has been integrated into the confined basement of a Grade II* Listed building is a demonstration of the careful design process and attention to detail that has created this very special gallery.
