St Kilda Viewpoint Visitor Centre

Fraser Architecture LLP

The design reflects St Kilda's World Heritage Site status while responding sensitively to the site's National Scenic Area designation. It meets the considerable challenges of a remote, exposed site, demonstrating "best value" within a tight budget. Our proposals create a memorable visitor journey: sheltered approach through external interpretation space and a strong axial route culminating in a panoramic viewing gallery. While the bold geometry creates drama internally, the external form and materiality minimise visual impact from surrounding vantage points. Light touch pier foundations reduce on-site environmental impact and a pre-fabricated construction system reduces the build challenges of its exposed location.
