Gardens Illustrated Magazine - - Design -

A new Bud­dhist re­treat, based on the de­sign of a tra­di­tional Suf­folk barn, has won a Civic Trust award for its ar­chi­tec­ture. The Va­jrasana Bud­dhist Cen­tre in Wal­sham-leWil­lows was de­signed by ar­chi­tects Wal­ter and Co­hen, with land­scape de­sign by Bradley-Hole Schoe­naich Land­scape. The Tri­ratna Bud­dhist re­treat em­braces three in­ner gar­dens, each with a dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter, which are places for meet­ing and med­i­tat­ing, with views to the open land­scape beyond. They in­clude a vis­i­tor’s gar­den, a court­yard wa­ter gar­den and a dry stupa court­yard with seat­ing. civic­trustawards.org.uk
