Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve Competition
RHA ‘s Nature and Wellbeing Centre for an international competition run by the RIBA is an exemplar in sustainability. The competition brief asked for a new £2M flagship visitor centre for the Kent Wildlife Trust on their existing reserve in Sevenoaks. The concept for the competition entry consisted of re-imaging and extending the existing concrete frame building to create a bridge between the formal welcome area and wild reserve beyond. Projecting from the building is a viewing platform formed from stacked recycled shipping containers, that rises above the trees and offers visitors a new perspective on the nature and activity within the woodlands.
