Situated in Greenwich and overlooking the Thames, the National Maritime Museum has been a London landmark for over 200 years. The Old Naval College building houses the museum and is a key attraction.
In 2010 the complex was expanded and updated to help maintain its status as a first class visitor facility.
OAG designed and fitted glass facades for a new brasserie and the main entrance to the new Sammy Ofer Wing. The project was designed by architect CF Moller, overseen by the principal architect Purcell Miller Tritton.
OAG supplied lanterns for the foyers and main hall and designed and delivered a pitched roof light spanning between the South West Wing of the old building and the new structure.
In the South West Wing, bespoke structural double-glazed arched windows were added to help bring the building up to today’s insulation efficiency regulations.
The architects wanted a subtle design that would connect to, and integrate well with, the existing older structures, bringing together the museum buildings and gardens as part of the greater Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site.
