CNPA | Grantown on Spey, Scotland 2014-2018 The new headquarters for the Cairngorms National Park Authority, in Grantown-on-Spey, will become the organisation’s public face, providing new reception areas in addition to office and meeting spaces. Located in the centre of town, it occupies a site adjacent to The Square, Grantown-on-Spey’s main public space. Yet, the proposed L-shaped building will keep a low profile, avoiding competition with the historic building to which it is linked. Subtle untreated European larch cladding and zinc roof (with some planted elements) will evolve over time, gaining patina, and will sit naturally within this historic town. Nonetheless, the HQ offers striking features: roof terraces, large and minimally-framed windows onto the square, and a wild garden.
