Hoskins showcases Highlands visitor centre

Hoskins Architects' visitors centre for Brodie Castle's 'Garden of Playfulness'

National Trust for Scotland project features nation’s largest rabbit sculpture

Hoskins Architects has completed a visitor centre for a Garden of Playfulness at Brodie Castle in the Highlands of Scotland.

The 278sq m building adopts a form at odds with its intended use, according to the practice.

While it is the entry to a £2.8m fantastical visitor attraction at the castle, located between Elgin and Inverness, it was designed to evoke the form and materiality of an ancillary agricultural building in order to maintain the primacy of the existing estate buildings, which date back to the 16th century.
