National Army Museum

Facts

Location Client Cost Completion
London National Army Museum £23.75m 2017

Project details

Our design includes re-organising the public realm and the entrance to the building, creating a stronger identity within the streetscape, as well as a radical re-ordering of the interior to create an atrium space which visually and physically links all floor areas and elements of accommodation and opens up views into and out of the museum.

Significant enhancements to existing accommodation include the reception and entrance space, café, retail and cloakroom facilities, and also to the environmental performance of the building to improve energy efficiency and reduce running costs, together with facilitating future maintenance.

Architect associate Verity Rowsell discusses the design of the new National Army Museum in a short film below and BBC News covers its dramatic transformation and reopening.
