The sleek new Visitor Centre, designed by Architype, provides a unique experience and vastly improved facilities for all those visiting the magnificent landscape of Chiltern Hills at Dunstable Downs, north of London, England.

The purpose designed Centre replaces an undistinguished kiosk snack bar with basic visitor facilities, which until now has serviced visitors.  

Located at Bedfordshire’s highest point – 798 ft above sea level - the new building will provide a rich visitor experience for the 400,000 people who visit each year.

When leading UK eco architects, Architype, grew out of their old office they decided that their new West of England office would be a model of sustainable workplace practice and contemporary design.


In 2007 Architype was awarded the Royal Institute of British Architects’ prestigious National Sustainability Award for the recently completed new office building, a resounding endorsement of their achievement. Architype was also named Building Magazine’s Sustainable Architect of the Year 2007.

Architype required a property in the West of England that could accommodate an expanding office staff of 17 (the practice also supports a 20 strong office in London).
