St Kilda visitor centre emerges from the mist
August 23 2016Kilda visitor centre, situated remotely on the Isle of Lewis, since being appointed to the project back in March.
Ionad Hiort is the product of months of work since the practice won an architectural competition to take on the project, which sits perched upon a clifftop site - from which St Kilda can be viewed some 50 miles to the west.
Architect Ruaraidh Flyn said: "It is an inspiring project and site. Our proposals are site specific and influenced by the extreme climatic and locational conditions. The new centre has to be a world-class project and will provide a focal point for the regeneration of an existing island community, capturing and interpreting the story of St Kilda, whilst providing an experience of Hebridean culture and landscape."
If delivered the centre would become the first UK project for Reiulf Ramstad who have become well known in their native Norway.
