Located within the historic Chatham Dockyard in Kent, the Command of the Oceans Museum was built on the site of a former sail-making workshop and is best known for the construction in 1765 of HMS Victory, Admiral Nelson’s flagship for the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. The new building features 20 glulam porticoes with a CLT roof deck; throughout the timber is fully exposed in contrast to the traditional timber structure of the adjacent warehouses. The project was designed by Baynes & Mitchell Architects and has won numerous awards including a nomination to the 2017 RIBA Stirling Prize. This historical project was nominated for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2017
