[First look + project data] Stanton Williams’ scheme for a visitor centre in Windsor Great Park has received planning permission
The practice’s design overlooks a man-made lake within the Grade I-listed Berkshire park.
Its ‘canopied’ form is planned to frame a view of the lake and create a sense of ‘arrival and anticipation’ – according to the practice.
Stanton Williams director Alan Stanton said: ‘We believe the project will engage and welcome people to Virginia Water, enhancing a unique place that people can enjoy visiting time and again.’
