The Civic Trust Award judges said the following about this project:

'The re-planning and refurbishment of the old Pepys building has been beautifully crafted and inserted sensitively into the renovated existing building fabric. The scheme is simply laid out and accessible physically and intellectually at many different levels, targeting all ages and abilities very successfully. Bright, airy spaces and a successful mezzanine level providing an exciting flexible area have been created. Discover Greenwich has delivered a radical improvement to interpretation and visitor access for the Old Royal Naval College and the wider Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site.'
