New museum in Chatham unveiled by van Heyningen and Haward

London-based practice van Heyningen and Haward has revealed these images of its transformation of a Grade II*-listed, former Royal Navy workshop in the Chatham Historic Dockyard

The award-winning architect’s £13 million scheme will provide a new national centre for maritime collections and a state-of-the-art cultural venue when opened in July.

The project refurbishes a brick Scheduled Ancient Monument, No.1 Smithery at the heart of The Historic Dockyard.

It was built in 1808 and once housed steam hammers, forges and anchor pits before being made redundant in 1972.
