Comar Architectural Aluminium Systems; with their approved fabricator PAGE Group Peterborough Ltd recently completed a Visitor Centre which is part of the Virginia Water Pavilion in Windsor Great Park. This new building overlooks Virginia Water, an extensive man-made lake set in a picturesque 18th century landscape, situated in the Grade 1 listed Royal Landscape in Windsor Great Park. The concept for the new visitor centre was born out of the immediate landscape and is located at the public entrance where the building welcomes visitors to Virginia Water. Its canopied form frames the view of the lake and the echelon form of the building and its terraces overlook the lake and facilities include a kiosk selling refreshments, public toilets and staff facilities.
