The Savill Building is a visitor centre for the Savill Gardens in Windsor Great Park designed by Glenn Howells Architects | Architecture Photographers
The Savill Building is an oak and larch column-free structure 120m by 30m – the largest in the UK containing retail areas, cafe, greenhouse, lecture hall and outdoor nursery area. The unique gridshell roof is a sinusoidal, double curved structure with three 10m high domes inspired by the shape of a leaf.
The unique ‘gridshell’ roof is supported by a circular section ring beam that encircles the structure and is supported by unobtrusive exterior steel legs.
Glenn Howell collaborated with Buro Happold, Robert Haskins Waters Engineers, The Green Oak Carpentry Company and Inwood Developments to design and construct the building and especially the amazing roof.
A grid of larch using over 20 kilometres of timber, felled from sustainable forests on the estate, was used to create the roof.
The structural layer is then covered in aluminum, insulation and finally an oak rainscreen to shed water | Architecture Photographers
