The competition is seeking designs for a new visitor centre for Sevenoaks Wildlife Reserve in Kent.

The new visitor centre will be the flagship visitor centre for Kent Wildlife Trust (KWT) offering key messaging around nature, health and wellbeing.

The Kent Wildlife Trust is seeking registered architects and architect-led teams worldwide to put forward designs that promote learning, wellbeing, curiosity and nature. Wildlife and landscape will be important - the centre should have elements that can accommodate wildlife as well as people, and be a natural companion and complement to the reserve it serves. Wherever possible it should build the connection with nature and be designed with health outcomes in mind for staff and centre-users.
