Millfield Visitor Centre
Visitor centre and adjacent footbridge in Jesmond Dene park, Newcastle
The centre has been built within the existing boundary wall of Millfield House, in the parkland of Jesmond Dene, and provides exhibition, cafe and education facilities.
The exterior ground floor facades - where not hidden behind the existing stone wall - are rendered white with ample glazing, and the first floor is clad with Siberian larch.
The scheme makes use of rainwater harvesting techniques and also incorporates a sedum roof.
In the landscape is a Cor-ten steel footbridge and an education pavilion.
