Reculver Visitors Centre
This project is the first phase of a wider regeneration masterplan for creating a 'green' tourism and learning hub at Reculver on the north Kent coast. The extended visitor centre with its curved sweet chestnut cladding, renewable energy technologies and framed views to the key assets of this sensitive site is intended as a visible focus point. A new multipurpose room, reception and interpretation display areas form the public elements with new office and DDA toilet facilities for staff.
