Design intentions The building is shaped like a star resembling the pathways of the forrest that surrounds it and used to be the hunting grounds for the king.
The buildiong is a lifted landscape creating a series of panoramic rooms in a hill. The green roof becomes part of the forrest floor creating a building that becomes one with the forrest.
The visitors centre hold learning facilities, labs, cafe, residence, exhibition areas and workshop.
It is a zero energy building that draws on the natural sustainable aspects of the forrest.
