A MUSEUM has won a top award celebrating its architecture.

The Mary Rose Museum, based at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, was one of 11 award winners of the RIBA South Regional Awards.

The award, organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects, recognises buildings for their architecture.

The Mary Rose Museum, along with the Exbury Egg, in Beaulieu, and a private house were the winners in Hampshire.

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.’
