Langley Vale Visitor Hub

London, UK

Our proposal for the Langley Vale Visitor Hub is inspired by the dramatic character of Langley Vale Woods; its landscape and its identity as England’s First World War Centenary Wood.
Overlooking Langley Vale, the new visitors’ hub has been designed with a deep respect for the landscape.

The architecture of the building emerges as part of the context and topography. The layout of the building responds to views and engages with the landscape and WWI memorial. By both framing the views and looking towards the views, the design enables visitors to consciously explore and enjoy the experience of the setting.
