The National Memorial Arboretum, Staffordshire, is the UK’s year-round centre of Remembrance; a spiritually uplifting place which honours the fallen, recognises service and sacrifice and fosters pride in our country.
The Remembrance Centre provides a gateway to the wider landscape of the Arboretum and is home to exhibition, interpretation and retail spaces, a learning centre featuring an immersive film experience and a large restaurant/cafe.
The interior vision was to create a destination for visitors to explore, engage and learn within an appropriate, calm and inviting environment.
The building uses larch timber and natural stone in response to the surrounding structures and landscape. The internal material palette responds to the architectural language whilst also framing the views through the panoramic full height windows.
