Acle Bridge National Park & Education Centre Design Competition

Feilden+Mawson’s competition winning design was chosen from 95 other national and international entries. When complete, it will provide the Broads with a new ‘Gateway’.

The building will help educate and delight those that visit it via interactive displays, classrooms, café and exhibition spaces on the importance of the big issues; i.e water management, climate change.

The vision was to commission and build an outstanding visitor centre for the site at Acle Bridge. A landmark building for the sensitive site which would create a new attraction for the National Park and raise the profile of the area’s special qualities. As well as this, the need for sustainability to be at the heart of the building was a must as this was the message being spread to those visiting.

The facility will also support yachties and other marina craft users. It is hoped that this highly sustainable building, incorporating a proactive response to flood risk, will be on site from 2019.
