Kelpies Visitor Facilities

Oliver Chapman Architects Ltd

Scottish Canals commissioned these interlinked modular units at the Kelpies, near Falkirk, to provide visitor facilities at the north end of the Helix - the 300 hectare park that includes woodland, paths, cycleways, water features and two thirty metre high equine sculptures by sculptor Andy Scott. The units were fabricated entirely off-site, allowing work to continue in parallel preparing the site for their arrival. Intended as a temporary facility, they can be individually lifted by a lorry-based crane and re-fitted as camping bothies at a different site, if needs be.
