DHA Designs were delighted to be nominated for two awards, to be announced at next year’s ceremony in March. They are shortlisted in the Special Projects category for David Bowie Is… and in the Public Buildings one for The Mary Rose Museum. Both projects can be found on the website.
Located in the historic dockyard of Portsmouth, the Mary Rose Museum displays part of the ship that served the navy of King Henry VIII for 33 years before spending 437 years undiscovered at the bottom of the sea. The remains of the ship were raised from the seabed in 1982, and along with the thousands of artefacts recovered, it proudly sits within the heart of the new museum building designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects.
