Pawson Williams has obtained detailed planning consent for an 1100m2 residential education and ecology centre for the Middlesex East guides on green belt land near Elstree, Hertfordshire. The scheme replaces temporary buildings dating from the early 1950s with a series of planar horizontal forms, designed to complement the undulating landscape. Facilities include two short-stay residential blocks, a meeting hall housed in a timber shingle- clad conical grid-shell structure cone, and several small outbuildings. Intended as an educational showcase, the scheme will incorporate a comprehensive approach to energy and environmental conservation, both in constructional and operational terms, enabling the community and people of all ages to understand more fully the way in which both they, and the buildings they occupy, interact with the natural environment.
