Mary Rose Museum – Update 2016

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 imMary Rose news imageages 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.
