Snowdon Summit Building

At 1085m this unique visitor centre is the highest building in England and Wales and must respond to one of the most extreme climatic locations in the world. To optimise the volume and energy requirement the building has been carefully sculpted, using natural stone from the area to withstand the harsh weather and also to reduce both its visual and wind signature.
