Elizabethan House

Elizabethan House

One of Plymouth's oldest buildings is getting a new lease of life as part of the Mayflower 400 commemorations.

It has been awarded a £142,000 development grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to enable the project to progress.

The overall design and installation contract has been awarded to The Hub Limited, who lead the fit-out of The Box. They will subcontract the design work to Hotrod Creations, who have worked on projects for the Natural History Museum, the Royal Parks Foundation and Transport for London.

A £2.13 million restoration and interpretation programme for the Grade II listed house is being funded and managed by the Council.

Update

Planning permission for a small two storey extension to the back of the building has been granted. This will provide space for new toilets, a kitchen for staff and storage. It will also support the deteriorated rear wall of this Grade II star listed building.

Two people have been appointed to oversee a programme of community research.

Two internationally experienced companies have also been appointed to lead on the design and installation of the new interpretation. The overall design and installation contract has been awarded to The Hub, which has an impressive list of clients including the Royal Armouries and Tate Modern.

They will sub-contract the design work to Hotrod Creations, a creative agency who have previously worked for the Natural History Museum and the Royal Parks Foundation.
