DHA Designs have now updated the lighting for the Mary Rose Museum.
On completion of the conservation process for the hull, the “Hotbox” enclosure was removed allowing full, panoramic views of the ship remains.
The hull lighting was re-designed (and updated to all LED) giving a set of dramatic “looks” that (very) slowly dissolve, as well as a set of a/v presentations that project images into and around the hull.
This phase of the museum design was by REAL Studios, a/v by Graham English, sound by Peter Key and lighting equipment and control by Control Lighting and Enliten.
DHA are very proud to have been asked to light the first exhibition in the new Media Gallery at the Science Museum in London.
The exhibition, the first in London showcasing British photographer Tony Ray-Jones, opened on Saturday as part of major refurbishment works in the space.
The exhibition also shows works by Martin Parr, who followed on from Ray-Jones’ work on cataloguing British life. Parr was asked by the National Media Museum to scour their archives of Ray-Jones’ work. He selected unfamiliar and previously unexhibited pieces for the gallery.
The gallery is an exciting new space in London, with the potential to show case major new works, and DHA are very pleased to be part of it. In the spirit of this, the gallery uses LED lighting and daylight harvesting to reduce the energy footprint.
Only in England runs until 16th of March 2014 in London and then from the 22nd of March until the 29th of June in Bradford.
More information and ticketing can be found on the Science Museum’s website here.

dha designs have recently completed the lighting to six galleries at Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. The new Egytian Galleries puts some of the museums most popular and valuable objects in a new setting as part of the ongoing redevelopment of this institution. Much of the lighting was done using Xicato LED light sources.
