Detailed plans have been revealed for the relocation of the Design Museum in London from its current location on the south bank of the Thames to the Commonwealth Institute building in Kensington.

John Pawson has redesigned the interior of the Grade II*-listed Commonwealth building while Netherlands-based OMA has planned the surrounding residential development.

The move will bring the museum into Kensington's cultural quarter, where it will join the V&A, Science Museum, Natural History Museum, Royal College of Art and Serpentine Gallery.

The new building will open to the public in 2014 and will treble the amount of gallery space currently available.

The museum aims to double its visitor numbers to 500,000 a year, and will greatly expand its education and public events programme with state of the art facilities.

Funding for the project will come from a number of sources, including £17m from The Conran Foundation and a £4.95m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Culture Minister Ed Vaizey, said: "It is immensely exciting to see the plans for the new Design Museum at the Commonwealth Institute in Kensington. The UK leads the world in design and architecture and it is entirely appropriate that we should be creating the world's greatest Design Museum at this iconic London landmark."
