Hagley Visitor Centre
Hagley Park and it’s Eighteenth Century buildings, monuments and gardens is one of only 2 listed landscapes within England – the other being Stourhead Gardens in Wiltshire.
Opened in the 18th Century within the grounds of Hagley Hall, the park was developed by Charles Lyttelton, Viscount Cobham who with his son, Thomas and later grandson, George, created one of the most famous eighteenth century landscapes which was visited by Lords, Princes, Russian Counts poets and even two American Presidents.
The park fell into disrepair and was closed many years ago, however recently major investment has been made into restoring the buildings, monuments and the park itself in order to re open it to the public. The final phase, is the construction of a new visitors centre with associated car park and access road.
The building, designed by Nickolas Reading of Reading Designs takes references from the park itself and its buildings to create a modern contemporary building with classical references. Bundred and Goode were required to move the scheme from the initial planning package onto full detailed drawings and with the design team, prepare tenders and ultimately oversee the construction of the centre.
It is hoped to complete the new building by late summer 2016.
