Greenwich, London is home to the National Maritime Museum, a building rich with history and is the leading maritime museum throughout the UK.   C.F. Møller Architects were contracted in 2006 to design an extension which would suitably integrate with the existing UNESCO World Heritage site. 

Albion Stone provided Portland Stone including filled Fancy Beach Whitbed paving for the upper and lower terrace, wall, ramps & parapet and Bowers Roach for the enclosed gazebos.

The £35m wing opened on 14 July 2011 and is the largest development in the National Maritime Museum'€™s history.

'€œThe Sammy Ofer Wing creates a spectacular contemporary environment in which more people can appreciate the wonders of our world-class collections and their stories of human endeavour and discovery. The opening of this new wing is only the start of our five-year programme to revitalise and refresh our permanent galleries and exhibitions.(Kevin Fewster, National Maritime Museum Director)
