Oban visitor centre set for autumn start
August 27 2014
Designed by Oberlanders Architects the pavilion forms part of a £4m waterfront regeneration strategy and will showcase the town’s maritime heritage whilst doubling as a hub for onward travel to the Hebrides.
This will see a former ticket office demolished to form a new tourism and transport hub and improve the setting of the B listed Columba Hotel. Taking the form of a circular public space, in reference to McCaig’s Folly, the timber, stone and glass addition will also open up sea views.
In their design statement Oberlanders said: “The proposed new building provides the opportunity to create a genuine landmark destination that delivers the Maritime Visitor Facility as part of a wider, cohesive regeneration of the heart of the North Pier.”
The new facilities are expected to complete next year.
