Following our work on the Blenheim master plan NBW was asked to design a visitor centre for the Palace. The project involved the re-planning of the cafe, shop and visitor reception areas and the creation of much improved facilities in the underused Butler’s Garden. This roofless wing was once a rather forgotten garden and laundry yard. It has now been glazed over to provide the new reception area.
We worked closely with the Palace, English Heritage and the local Conservation Officer to achieve a sensitive scheme for this World Heritage site. The building won an Oxford Preservation Trust award. Photographs courtesy of Lightmaster.
