Elizabethan House, Plymouth
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.
DHVA led a team of specialist consultants to repair and extend the building and enable an imaginative interpretation strategy. The project was delivered in collaboration with James Mackintosh Architects and was recently featured on the cover of the SPAB magazine.
The repair, extension and exhibition fit-out project has been completed and the museum is now open to the public. The project won the prestigious 2022 RICS Award for the best heritage project in the southwest.
