East RIBA Regional Award 2019
Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios with Lucas+Western Architects for Holkham Estate
Contract value: £1.3m
Cost per m²: £8,604
Feilden Clegg Bradley’s concept and developed design for this simple visitor centre was very strong. Some of the wetland was excavated to give a greater variety of habitat, and the spoil mounded up so that the new visitor centre could be elevated above the flood level, in a position high enough to give good views across the bird reserve. Norfolk practice Lucas+Western Architects took forward the technical design and delivery, and its skilled detailing ensured that the building retained the simplicity of the original concept.
