A timber pavillion by Ailteir-studio in collaboration with Emma Jane Architect was shortlisted in the SSR Competition, launched by the Scottish Government with Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park Authority.
Architects and landscape architects were invited to submit proposals for fully realisable designs to be constructed at three different locations within the National Park area. Ailteir-studio collaborated with Emma Jane Architect to produce a design which was shortlisted in 2013.
The Lubnaig site is situated on the Lochside with a view of the loch and mountains beyond. The concept was for a timber pavilion to provide shelter and a focal point for viewing the loch. A route collects visitors and directs them to the pavilion where the views are framed by the structure.
The timber pavilion can be constructed in parts off site and mounted on minimal impact piles on site. Materials are locally sourced and primarily timber. The building sits off the ground allowing the local flora and faunae to inhabit the area.
