We’ve got until 9th July until we hear about the Art Fund Prize for Museum of the Year 2014, but last week we won another awards for our museum building!
The Mary Rose Museum was one of 11 regional winners in Hampshire, along with the Exbury Egg, in Beaulieu, and a private house, of the RIBA South Regional Awards 2014. The award, organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects, recognises buildings for their architecture.
The 11 regional winners were from a shortlist of 21 after 41 entries were received.
RIBA regional director James Robinson said: ‘There was a fantastically high standard of entry to the RIBA Awards this year.
‘We are very lucky in the south to have the local ambition and design talent to be able to complete buildings of this quality.
‘From public buildings to private houses and the conservation of our valuable historic built environment – these award-winning architects have demonstrated the value of good design.’
