Moxon completes Cairngorms HQ extension

Moxon Architects' extension to the Cairngorms National Park Authority headquarters, which was officially opened on 16 November

Modern addition to National Park Authority base ’extrapolates town grain’

Moxon Architects has completed the extension of the Cairngorms National Park Authority’s Grantown-on-Spey headquarters, substantially increasing the floorspace with a modern wing.

The £1m extension uses traditional materials deployed in what its designers said was a “contemporary idiom” that enhanced the innate characteristics of the town.

It features an exposed cross-laminated timber structure that is clad in natural European larch, as well as pleated zinc and frameless glazing.
