The learning centre was designed to be light and airy with the ability to provide pedagogy for the Royal Horticultural Society. The buildings required direct and easy links to the outside teaching spaces. The concept design for the external teaching areas was provided by Adam Frost. Our Landscape team were tasked with the production of detailed design information and to make comment/revise areas of concern with regard to flow and building regulations approval.
The second building needed to house a restaurant and events barn. This building is located at the top of a hill with fantastic views of the surrounding Essex countryside. Large glazed sections were used to provide an ‘inside out’ feeling within the space. A glu-laminated frame was used to add grandeur and provide focal points with the aspect of the roof. The building was clad in timber that flowed down the walls and onto decked areas. The external paving also followed the internal floor finishes providing clean lines through the building.
The services we provided were Architectural and Landscape.
