Cabinet Gallery

The Cabinet Gallery sits on the southeast edge of what were formerly the grounds of the celebrated c18th Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. The building is the first purpose-built art gallery to be sited in a London public park. The distinctive five-storey, 12-sided structure was designed by architect Trevor Horne in close collaboration with Cabinet’s founding directors Andrew Wheatley and Martin McGeown along with their friend and backer Charles Asprey. Our landscape is a simple response to the site which aims to frame and embower the building, and to make it a striking terminus to the newly-planted Cherry Walk which traverses the park.
