A wise person once said that content without context is just noise!

Today’s @museumweek theme of #CaptionThisMW, fits perfectly with the graphics that are a huge part of the work we do in museums.  The images & information they provide, take visitors on a journey & answer their unspoken questions before they have even been conceived.  Using well-worded terminology to help illustrate the importance & relevance of the precious artefact they see before them.

Without the context these ‘captions’ provide; world-renowned, historically priceless, museum collections around the globe, would fail the capture the rapt attention of their visitors.  And the importance of them would slowly be lost. The graphics we create are meticulously designed to complement the museums & collections we work with.  Giving clarity to the collections we all want passed on to future generations.
How would you like to explore mangroves, coral reefs, lush rainforests & an underwater world all in the same day? The Natural History Museum at the Sheikh Abdullah Al Salem Cultural Centre in Kuwait (@ascckw) is a nature lover’s paradise, providing an incredible sensory experience.

In one of our largest projects to date, we managed the entire fit-out of all 5 museums which make up the cultural centre.

The prehistoric gallery in the Natural History Museum houses 34 incredible, full-sized, skeletal and full-bodied prehistoric creatures, all fabricated to highly realistic levels of detail. They were made in conjunction with @bluerhinostudio in Minneapolis & then shipped by air over 6000 miles to Kuwait City.  We managed a detailed approvals process, ensured design sign off & installed these imposing sculptures into their new home.

For the second day of @museumweek, pictured above is a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the making of Pterosaurs, which shows the scale of the sculptures.  Pterosaurs lived 162 million years ago & has been called the ‘winged dragon’. This particular model also featured in @natgeouk
What dreams do you have for the place you call home?  If the possibilities were endless, what future do you imagine for the community you live in?

‘What if…?/Scotland’ is a brand new exhibition by V&A Dundee (@vadundee) which asked citizens from five communities across Scotland these very questions.  And then linked them with architects & designers to explore how engaging design professionals with the local community can stimulate big ideas & create meaningful change in the lives of citizens.

The exhibition was originally intended to be staged in Venice as part of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition.  But when the pandemic made this impossible, BECK Scotland worked with @7NArchitects, @creativescots & @arcdessco to help create a local home for this innovative & thought-provoking exhibition. In just three weeks, we transformed a breakout space in V&A Dundee, which will house the exhibition until November. Pictured here are the team overseeing final touches before the launch.
Our 68,000 square foot, high tech workshop is one of the jewels in our crown.  It’s where we bring our client’s visions to life with beautiful craftmanship & bespoke pieces.  But equally important are the learning opportunities it offers.

Each year we take on six apprentices, who have the opportunity to learn from our senior craftspeople.  Some of the most talented in the industry.  Unfortunately, college training or apprenticeships for a Wood Machinist are no longer available so, at BECK, we have decided to train for this position in-house.

Our trainees benefit from working with highly skilled machinists, stringent health & safety procedures, state-of-the-art equipment & a structured programme that teaches them the skills they need.  Together with our apprentice joiners, we invest & plan for the craftspeople of the future.
On International Museum Day, we celebrate the museums around the globe which educate, entertain and enrich all our lives.  At BECK, we are proud of the innovative projects we have collaborated on & the impact they have on the communities around them.

Right now, our team are working at the incredible Grand Egyptian Museum.  Colossal in size & rich in priceless artefacts!

The forward-thinking design of architects @heneghan.peng, @haleysharpdesign & Cultural Innovations reimagines the visitor museum experience, which we are bringing to life with beautiful display structures, showcases and bespoke works.
One of the most important aspects of a project, is ensuring an operating business can function with minimal impact on their day-to-day operations.  For this scheme we converted the ground floor public spaces of what was once The Cumberland, into the first London location for @hardrockhotels to bring @hrh.london to life, in collaboration with @scottbrownriggltd, @gt_llp and @hdrhurleypalmerflattgroup.

A key challenge was ensuring the rest of the hotel remained operational throughout.  Our team worked seamlessly to make sure the impact on guest experience was minimised wherever possible.  We carefully managed noise creating activities, focussed heavily on logistics & planned ahead for the connection into the services infrastructure for the main hotel.

Our clients can be assured they are in safe hands, when their business needs to continue operating throughout their refurbishment works.

In 1895, celebrated playwright Oscar Wilde was licking his wounds at the Cadogan Hotel in London after losing his very public libel case against the Marquess of Queensberry. Shortly after, he was famously arrested at the hotel & sentenced to two years in prison. Fearing an arrest was imminent, friends had begged him to escape to France but he chose to languish at The Cadogan, drinking heavily & awaiting the inevitable.  Some say because his reported lover, Arthur, was also staying there.

We were proud to completely refurbish this historic hotel for @belmondcadogan in collaboration with Blair Associates Architecture, @thega_group & @russellsagestudio for Cadogan Estates to create a beautiful, luxurious retreat in the heart of Chelsea.

Great care has been taken to ensure a nod to Wilde remains.  A crystal encrusted peacock, named Oscar, stands proudly outside the hotel function rooms & purple suede chairs reference his smoking jackets.  Room 118, where he was arrested, is now part of the stunning Royal Suite.

Hands up who loves a period property? Georgian, Edwardian, Victorian, Arts & Crafts; we adore them all.  What’s not to love about beautiful cornicing, sash windows and high ceilings? But as time goes on these delicate details can deteriorate and need renovating with sensitivity and skill.

@homegrownclub connects a community of entrepreneurs and professionals in a sumptuous period location, which we lovingly renovated in collaboration with @eprarchitects and @russellsagestudio.

Attention-to-detail can never be too great in a period property & for this project, the original Georgian floorboards were all lifted, numbered, refurbished & returned to the exact same location.  Now that’s dedication!

What’s your favourite style of period property?
Outdoor dining makes a welcome return today (although the snow might be putting a spanner in the works for opening day!) & when the sun shines London is bursting with beautiful al fresco spots.

Finally, we can take afternoon tea, enjoy indulgent fine dining, or partake in a delicious cocktail or two. An recent article by @theresidentlondon rounded up some of the best luxurious experiences in the city (https://bit.ly/3dQrHr0) and we’re honoured that several key projects from our portfolio feature on the list:

@rosewoodlondon boasts a beautiful seasonal terrace.

At the impossibly tropical @themandrakehotel (pictured) guests can enjoy private cabanas & lush greenery.

Diners at @fslondon relax on a leafy terrace just seconds from Park Lane.

A modern menu can be enjoyed just across the road from Green Park at @sheratongrandlondon.

And finally, The Bar & Terrace at the @belmondcadogan enjoys stunning views over the Cadogan Place Gardens.

Have you tried any of these gorgeous venues? Or do you have a favourite spot for al fresco dining or drinks? Let us know in the comments.
