Competition win for National Railway Museum
We are unbelievably delighted to have won this prestigious design competition for Central Hall at the National Railway Museum in York to transform the visitor arrival experience and integrate the museum’s estate in time for its 50th anniversary in 2025.
Inspired by the site’s former uses, our design concept references the history of locomotive roundhouses and railway turntables with its central two-storey rotunda, clad with recycled patinated copper and lit with high clerestory glazing. The design also expresses the team’s low-tech philosophy, dramatically reducing reliance on concrete and steel to lower embodied carbon through a beautifully crafted, timber frame structure.
A huge thanks to the whole competition team and in particular our wonderful collaborators Max Fordham and Price & Myers. You can find out more about our winning entry here.
