In association with Dundee City Council Construction Services and the Unicorn Preservation Society, Aim were invited to develop a reception module to provide supporting facilities for visitors to the ship. In addition to the reception module, the project included the enhancement of the exhibition maritime heritage journey through the ship, including upgrading general and showcase lighting and the highlighting of star objects to enhance the experience of the ship, a cherished piece of Dundee’s maritime heritage.

The reception module is located on the quayside and consists of a shipping container, referencing the nautical theme of the setting, wrapped in charred black oak cladding to blend with the ship’s hull. The module provides a low-cost and suitably functional visitor space to support the ship staff, visitors and events.
