RHS Garden Wisley


Project Details

The new Welcome building has transformed the entrance experience at Wisley, and in the RHS’s words “put design, plants and horticulture at the forefront for visitors to enjoy.”

The concept pays homage to the garden’s heritage and is based on buildings clustered around an open-air ‘village square’, with an elegant spacious arrivals hall featuring a 100 seat table-service restaurant, café’ and shop with indoor and outdoor seating.

Our role as delivery side architect to Buckingham Group involved extensive design development of the complex pitched roof geometry, refined detailing using a carefully selected palette of materials, and interior design of the arrivals hall reception and display joinery.
