National Maritime Museum

Purcell

The National Maritime Museum is the largest of its kind in the world, welcoming over 1.5million visitors a year. Purcell was appointed as executive architects/lead consultants to deliver a major new wing. The scheme by concept architects C.F.Møller incorporates a new entrance, state-of-the-art archive, exhibition spaces and enhanced visitor facilities. One of the challenges was to create a fully accessible archive for over half a million maritime artefacts, to comply with modern conservation and preservation standards. The new exhibition spaces create an engaging and interactive museum for the 21st Century. The project has achieved a BREEAM 'Very Good' rating.
