The Great Fen Visitor Centre

Location: Great Fen

Sectors: Cultural, Sustainability, Competition

In collaboration with landscape architects OOBE we created this vision of the Great Fen Visitor Centre which was long listed as part of an RIBA competition.

Working with the existing ecological heritage, the historical grain of field drains and hedgerows was reinforced to form a network of pathways and interventions forming the masterplan in which the centre is sited. Drawing inspiration from the vernacular of historical pump houses and chimneys, the living tower gives the visitor an observation deck, a focal point and an understanding of the macro and micro biodiversity.

Visitors are encouraged to follow their senses as they experience the Fen habitats through a network of waterways, paths and boardwalks branching out from the Visitors Centre into the extraordinary landscape.

Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service Headquarters Artwork
Location : Belmont, County Durham
Sectors: Office, Artwork

To complete the refurbishment of the headquarters at Belmont the Fire and Rescue Service commissioned a series of artworks for the principle staircases to celebrate the iconic buildings of the region.

Abstracting elements of Darlington Station, Durham Cathedral, Darlington Market Hall and Bowes Museum we created this series of images which were transformed into five metre images and installed on feature walls within the facility.
