The Mary Rose Museum (pictured) has been chosen as the People’s Choice for 2014 in this year’s Solent Design Awards.

The judges also awarded the top Quality Places Award to Ryde School on the Isle of Wight and the Urban Design Award to the St Alphege Building at the University of Winchester.

The Mary Rose Museum in Portsmouth was described by the judges as ‘an understated, simple, elegant structure’ with ‘artefacts imaginatively displayed, recreating the concept of the secret jewel inside the box’.

Paul Grover from the University of Portsmouth, who helped organise the awards on behalf of the Partnership for Urban South Hampshire (PUSH), said: ‘Our view is that the public’s choice is as important as that of the professionals, as they are the people who really matter and, as with the Sterling Prize this year, the community must be paramount in each and every design.’
