TYPE: New visitor centre

Address: The Great Fen, Cambridgeshire

We took part in an RIBA organised open-competition seeking design proposals for The Great Fen project's new visitor centre. Over 200 design proposals were submitted for consideration so we were very pleased to learn that our design made it to the long-list of the final thirty proposals considered by the judging panel. We wanted our design to feel 'fen-like', our starting point was to consider the qualities of the landscape and aim to reflect these qulaities in the architecture. We arrived at a fairly simple building form with three wings grouped around a courtyard that opened out onto the wider landscape.
