concept design for a new visitor centre for the Aldabra Atoll
         
Under our joint venture Rennie & Stagg, we were invited to submit proposals to the Seychelles Island Foundation for the design of a new $15 million (USD) visitor and operations centre. The project, known as 'Aldabra House', is intended to promote a better understanding of Aldabra Atoll - a remote and unique coral atoll in the Indian Ocean which is both a UNESCO World Heritage site and a RAMSAR site. As home to hundreds of endemic species it is also a highly valuable source of research for scientists.

As part of a consortium led by WWT Consulting we competed against four other invited teams, including the designers of the London Eye - Marks Barfield, and double Stirling-prize winners Wilkinson Eyre. We were invited to visit the site on the Seychelles main island Mahe, and present our ideas to the judging panel in September 2014.
