:The Vajrasana Buddhist Retreat Centre is located in Suffolk. The LBC's ambitions were to increase capacity from 34 to 60 people, create a new meditation room and improve accessibility. The scale and quality of the new buildings: simple materials and local techniques create a balance between a modest architecture and reverence of the spiritual spaces. Integration with the landscape is fundamental to the aesthetic and sense of serenity and contemplation. Single-storey, charred timber buildings wrap around the central courtyard to provide communal living and dining rooms and bedroom pods. A dark, multi-toned brick envelops the shrine room, meditative Stupa courtyard and serene Akshobya courtyard.
