Stockwood Discovery Centre opens to public - 12/07/2008

Stockwood Park Museum in Luton reopened to the public today as Stockwood Discovery Centre after a £6m redevelopment involving a year’s extensive refurbishment and building.

Architects Buttress Fuller Alsop Williams met a brief that asked to improve visitor facilities at the museum, re-displaying and re-interpreting the collections; plus integrating the museum and landscaped gardens to create a more cohesive visitor experience.

The resulting design is broken into individual building elements that wrap around mature trees in the landscape, creating clear orientation points and helping to interpret the landscape.
