Bodnant Garden Visitor Centre, Wales
The National Trust
A comprehensive overhaul of the visitor arrival experience providing improved access and new accommodation to meet changing and increasing demands.
The new reception building includes an arrival space and reception/ticketing/introductory display building to form the gateway to the garden and the Nursery Garden Centre. The project involved construction of a new ramped approach from the main car park area to an underpass below a busy road.
Other proposals within the estate have included the design of a new building within the existing landscape to provide office, workshop and welfare facilities for administrative and garden personnel in addition to in-house/lettable training facilities.
