Nautical Museum, Isle of Man

Steensen Varming is excited to be working on this iconic historic project at Nautical Museum in Castletown with Fraser Randall alongside the prestigious project teams of Manx National Heritage, DANNATT, JOHNSON ARCHITECTS LLP and Real Studios, to deliver the transformation of the museum in Isle of Man, U.K. 

The project combines conservation and adaptation of existing historic buildings together with innovative and accessible approaches to exhibition design and visitor interaction. As part of the transformation, an architecturally distinct display boathouse will also be built to house the historic ship, The Peggy. Fitted with drop-keels; an experimental innovation in 1789, Peggy is the only surviving example of a small wooden boats which is not a naval vessel, once found in their thousands around the western British Isles.
