LDN Architects take design lead at Inverness Castle visitor centre
May 13 2019
Highland Council has selected LDN Architects to carry forward the transformation of Inverness Castle into a set piece visitor destination for the city.
LDN were brought on board for their extensive conservation expertise, which will see the heritage asset enhanced for its new role as a tourism hub, serving as a gateway to the wider Highland region.
The castle vision includes the formation of new galleries and displays as well as a selection of shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. New public spaces, including a viewpoint, will also be developed with the potential to build additional hotel accommodation.
Stuart MacKellar of LDN Architects said: “As architect for the recent improvements to the neighbouring Inverness Town House, as well as a range of other heritage projects in the UK and beyond, we are excited to be bringing our experience to bear for the castle project.”
In tandem with the physical works, an events programme will be led by Creative Services, an independent cultural consultancy, which will seek to maximise the educational and promotional potential of the castle.
