Parc Essex, Braintree, Essex.
Parc Essex is a registered charity providing a service for children with special needs and their families. We were commissioned to design a new facility located in the Discovery Centre Country Park in Braintree. There were many constraints on this project which influenced the design. The planners insisted on a landmark design due to its close proximity to the Discovery Centre and its country park setting. The client wanted a building that would inspire and stimulate, that would be spacious and naturally lit but also provide an element of privacy.
