National Maritime Museum
We are delighted to announce that we are working with multi-award winning landscape architects LUC on the Landscape Masterplan for the National Maritime Museum. Michael Grubb Studio are appointed as lighting designers with the role of developing a Light & Dark Strategy for the site.
The landscape significance of the National Maritime Museum site is primarily based on its contribution to the larger architectural and landscape composition of Maritime Greenwich (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), in which Greenwich Park, the Queen’s House and National Maritime Museum, the Old Royal Naval College and the River Thames are linked by a Grand Axis and the historical outline of the Royal Park and palace area.
The site comprises approximately 12 acres and is contained within Romney Road to the north, Park Row to the east, Greenwich Park to the south and the boundary to Devonport House and King William Walk to the west.
The grounds were used extensively as venue for the Equestrian and Modern Pentathlon events at the London 2012 Olympic Games and are used on occasions to host other large external events, such as Greenwich Festival and the Greenwich Comedy Festival.
