Broads Education + Visitor Centre

journal.jpg

We recently submitted our competition entry for a new education and visitor centre for the Broads Authority. Located next to Acle Bridge, our design lifts the primary accommodation out of the flood plain to offer far reaching views.  The use of locally sourced materials including oak cladding and Norfolk reed thatch creates an environmentally sensitive and resilient landmark.

Studio visit to completed project in Mells
