The Marianne North Gallery at Kew Gardens was designed by architectural historian James Ferguson and purpose-built to house the work of botanical artist Marianne North, who donated her unique collection of paintings to Kew in 1882. Her art documents over 900 exotic and rare plant species from her world travels, and provides a unique snapshot of the world’s flora and fauna over 100 years ago.
Working closely with the architects Donald Insall Associates and the specialist fixing contractor Wilson and Wylie, we produced scaled working floor drawings and manufactured over 22,000 geometric tiles for this project.
In 2011 The Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers presented Wilson & Wylie The Triennial Award for Wall and Floor Tiling for the Marianne North Gallery project.
