Rainham Marshes Visitor Centre, Essex

A competition-winning design for a new visitor centre overlooking the Thames for the RSPB at Rainham Marshes. The scheme has achieved BREEAM 'Excellent' rating, and there was much consideration of the sustainability aspects of the project at every stage. The structure is a simply detailed concrete frame, supported on piled foundations because of difficult ground conditions.

Completed 2007.
