DHV Architects were the lead consultants for the regeneration of the late Sixteenth Century Elizabethan House Museum for Plymouth City Council.

 

The Elizabethan House is a Grade II* listed quay-side merchant’s house in the Barbican area of Plymouth’s beautiful historic old town. The museum is the most complete and unaltered example of a jettied merchant’s house in Plymouth. However, the building is in a poor structural condition and is on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk Register, and needs careful repair work and complete re-servicing to bring it back into life as a cultural destination for Plymouth.

 

We are lead a team of specialist consultants on the project to help deliver an imaginative interpretation strategy alongside carefully considered repair and conversion work. The project was delivered in collaboration with James Mackintosh Architects as part of a growing strategic partnership between the practices.

 

The repair, extension and exhibition fit out project has been completed and the museum is now open to the public. Watch our video for more information.
