Situated on the centerline of Botanical Drive, the new Guest Welcome Center at the Huntsville Botanical Garden sets the tone for the visitor experience at the world-class garden. The stately 32,000 square foot facility features three new premiere rental facilities – the Grand Hall, the Glass Conservatory, and the Carriage house, along with a gift shop and café, offices and meeting rooms, and additional visitor amenities. These improved amenities accommodate increased visitation and attendance, expedite and improve visitor check-in and orientation, and maximize revenue opportunities. Timeless and graceful, functional and resilient – the building’s design is a culmination of ideas from MGA+I design team, garden members and staff, the project planning committee, and the community, and as such, is sure to be a lasting asset as the epicenter of the visitor experience.
