Sutton Hoo

National Trust

Transforming the visitor experience of an iconic Anglo-Saxon burial ground

Architecture, Exhibition Design, Interpretation

Sutton Hoo is an Anglo-Saxon Royal Burial Ground and one of the most important archaeological sites in England. It is also a Scheduled Ancient Monument.

We are working with the National Trust to transform the visitor experience to reveal incredible stories and enhance the significant archaeological landscape. We are creating new routes from the new entrance to the Royal Burial Ground and have created a carefully choreographed journey through the landscape, including thresholds and interpretive moments through landscaping and architectural interventions.

Our design works sensitively with a site of great archaeological and cultural significance, where the preservation of the archaeology of the Scheduled Ancient Monument is of upmost importance.
