A number of new gallery areas will also be created as part of this ambitious scheme for this leading national museum. MET Studio - in a joint venture with Dutch contractor Hypsos and content specialists Tinker Imagineers - is responsible for four ground-floor rooms at the top right corner of the square building, framing the new courtyard space. The brief for the project had asked how four individual rooms could be transformed into a series of immersive galleries, built around compelling 'emotion-filled stories from naval history'.
