Sevenoaks Nature and Wellbeing Centre
The Royal Institute of British Architects seeked design concepts for a new visitor centre for Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve in Kent. In our proposal the centre is conceived as a compact cluster of iconic volumes inspired by the traditional buildings of the region, arranged in order to create a gateway to the reserve.The design aims to improve the existing infrastructures to minimize the impact on the surrounding natural landscape and the project budget. The centre is designed as an L-shape building where one wing sits alongside the central path from the car parking, which enables an iconic perception of the centre, and the other wing protrudes onto the West Lake.
