Acle Bridge

The three distinct programmatic requirements for the building have each been housed in separate volumes, breaking down the scale of the new building into a cluster of three pitched roofs, that includes the existing thatch building into their overall ensemble. The simple pitched roof volumes are connected by a central link or ‘blue roof’ that collects the rain water allowing it to be harvested in a water tank opposite the main entrance. The intention is to reveal the management and flow of the water and at certain moments through the use of roof lights allow the daylight to refract and bring the magic of water into the building.
