Windermere Jetty Museum
Carmody Groarke 

The London firm of Kevin Carmody and Andy Groarke designed this museum that harbors a boat collection on the shores of Windermere, England’s largest natural lake, in Cumbria County’s Lake District National Park.

Outside the town of Windermere, the site was previously occupied by a gravel-extraction plant. Using the vernacular architectural language of agricultural and industrial buildings, the museum is characterized by pitched roofs, wide cantilevering beams, and facades clad in striated panels of oxidized copper, interspered by large, view-framing openings.

The configuration of the compact volumes produces a strong topographic engagement with the lakeside place. The museum’s central piece is a covered wet dock where boats can be displayed. It is surrounded by the rest of the buildings, on a concrete podium, among them a conservation workshop, educational spaces, and a cafeteria.
