RIBA Award winner, 19 May 2011

The visitor’s centre sits at the focal point of Jesmond Dene’s linear park, which has served generations of visiting families.

From every approach the new building is a well considered response to the park: forms, colours, textures and volumes establish a consistent narrative with the complementary pieces within the scheme such as a footbridge and an animal shelter. The most striking example is the contrast between the thin verticals of the bridge structure against the curved timber cladding of the upper floor of the visitors’ centre.

The Sedum roof and rainwater collection systems announce the building’s environmental credentials but the real magic is in its relationship with the existing building and activities taking place in the park.
