Plans emerge for Cairngorm National Park Authority HQ extension
January 12 2015
Designed by Moxon Architects to provide a new public facing entrance the scheme will play host to exhibitions and informal meetings whilst offering new connections to the War Memorial.
In doing so it adopts a low profile with a new roof terrace formed from an existing high level emergency access point, masked from the street by a sloping, planted roof.
In a statement Moxon wrote: “The new building connects through to the current building with a shallow indent on the street edge to allow for a relaxed public entrance and a safe location for disabled parking & access. This indent is defined by the rear elevation of the existing premises, the entrance elevation of the extension and its return to the street edge.
“The fourth edge of the indent to Church Avenue is partially enclosed by a low granite wall extending along the line of the current annex, creating the courtyard form of the proposal that is common to secondary streets in the Grantown on Spey Conservation Area.”
