​TORVER VISITOR CENTRE & ENVIRONS
Designing within the highly protected Lake District National Park holds many challenges to both the designer and to the landscape. The aim of this project is to design a new visitor centre to engage people with their outdoor environment in a manner beneficial to both. The design of the centre and surrounding area has been approached in a manner sympathetic to the conservation and enhancement of this heritage landscape.
