The architectural composition of the centre is simple yet distinctive, sensitive to its
surroundings and to the significance of the monument.

the scheme includes improved visitor facilities, better opportunities for interpretation of
the stones and the wider site, and most importantly, a substantially improved landscape
setting in which to appreciate Stonehenge.
Supported by slender angled stick columns, a non-reflective metal roof shelters various
visitor amenities. Its edges are perforated to dapple the light reaching the exhibition and
education facilities housed below in a pair of single-storey cubes, one glass and the other
