Scheme name: Brockholes Visitor Centre

Practice: Adam Khan Architects

Client: Lancashire Wildlife Trust

Photographer: Ioana Marinescu

The visitor centre at Brockholes is a cluster of buildings set in a lake on a floating pontoon, which responds to changing water levels in the flood plain. The architect has broken down what is a sizeable scheme into a simple and engaging village of buildings - restaurant, a shop, an exhibition hall, an education centre and a conference centre - designed to celebrate the natural environment. Each cube or rectangle of accommodation has a barn-like roof creating an animated skyline floating above the lake.
