Great Fen Visitor Centre
The aim of the visitor centre is to showcase the regeneration of more than 3,000ha of largely arable land which will be transformed into a mosaic of habitats spanning the next 50 - 100 years.
Key to our concept is the construction methodology; substantial cost savings are achieved by developing an innovative cassette system made of hay insulation and thatched rainscreen cladding, all tied together by a prefabricated glulam structural system. Repetition allows for a highly crafted finish, utilising local labour and skills thereby creating a design which is historically and culturally rooted.
