East London practice will work with architect De Matos Ryan on £13.5m project

AOC Architecture has won the competition to design the new interiors of the V&A’s Museum of Childhood in east London.

The practice, based just half a mile from the Bethnal Green museum, will work with base build architect De Matos Ryan on the £13.5m scheme to open up and modernise the grade II*-listed Victorian galleries, and add a new lower-ground-floor entrance.

De Matos Ryan was picked for the project in October last year, beating Heneghan Peng, Jestico & Whiles, Pringle Richards Sharratt, Simpson & Brown Architects and Opera Amsterdam in the process.
