Loch Lomond Gateway and Orientation Centre

Bennetts Associates

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, Scotland's first National Park, required a visitor facility that could cope with millions of visitors per year. The building is self effacing to emphasise that the natural world is the primary exhibit. Held between an oak colonnade and woodland, the glazed pavilion overhangs the loch and forms a discreet threshold to the park. A boardwalk then leads visitors through the trees past a series of public artworks.
