Glencoe Base Station

The new Base Station links directly to the skiing facilities and provides a cafe/bar, main reception and 24-hour WC facilities accessible to campers and users of the building.

The key drivers of the scheme were to provide a sense of arrival, ease wayfinding and take advantage of the views. The project allows for the future expansion of administrative services and significantly improves the back of house facilities, easing deliveries and allowing the client to deal with the wide fluctuations in use the building experiences.
The building is designed entirely around the flows of people around the site and its relationship to the spectacular landscape. It is positioned as a focal point and the direct route through the building to the mountain splits the building into public and service elements.
