THE Mary Rose Museum has picked up an architectural award.

It won a Royal Institute of British Architects honour in the organisation’s 2014 scheme.

The building at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard was designed by Wilkinson Eyre Architects.

Stephen Hodder, president of RIBA, said: ‘The design team resolved the most complex brief: strict atmospheric conditions on a historic site.

‘It is evident that each building on this year’s list has been a labour of love but worth every penny and effort.’
