Acle Bridge Competition

Tuesday, September 18, 2018

In May 2018, NC Architecture partnered with local engineering firm DYSE, to prepare a competition entry for a National Park & Education Centre on the Norfolk Broads. Our concept was to use local traditional wooden boat building techniques and local trades people, to create striking structures, that would reflect both the character and history of the area. We also wanted to ensure that all materials, such as the lathes, thatch and timber, could be sourced locally, to further boost the ecological credentials of the project. The proposals comprised of eight conical 'huts', which are interconnected by a timber walkway, lifting the ground floor of the proposals above the flood plain. This was a very exciting project and a great opportunity for us to flex some creative muscle and apply some lateral thinking.
