St Albans Cathedral
Client: St Albans
Duration: Design to completion, 16 weeks
We were commissioned by St Albans Cathedral to design the visitor entrance and retail experience, which together form the Cathedral’s Welcome Centre. As a Grade I listed building, it was important to maintain a design sympathetic to the history of the space, while also implementing some modern touches to excite and welcome in new visitors.
We designed a solution which was inspired by the historical features of the original architecture whilst also fitting with the complementary modern extension. We manufactured all the wall bays, fixtures and fittings within the retail area and incorporated the new welcome area displays. The spaces were produced with flexibility in mind, so that St Albans Cathedral can use them in a variety of ways to respond to changing visitor needs as well as accommodating seasonal displays.
The space was designed to enable St Albans cathedral retail and exhibition teams with the room to realise future developments to the visitor centre.
Located in the heart of St Albans town, only 20 miles from the center of London, you will find this magnificent Cathedral steeped in history
