DWCT Visitor Centre
A highly sustainable building in Jersey (2008)
Essential to the scheme is that the centre is easily accessible and its space rationally organised. The planning carefully reflects the many types of visitors (Paying visitor / Non-paying / School groups / Eco-lodge residents), who will use the Centre in different ways. ZEDfactory therefore designed the buildings with these flows in mind. The central avenue between the buildings acts as a congregational area, where queuing, eating and experiences can take place. The timber ramp is heavily landscaped and allows for disabled access. A glazed canopy with clearly visible renewable services attached will give an iconic message to visitors of this sustainable building.
