Project Name: David Douglas Pavilion
Building Type: Public
Location: Explorer’s Garden, Pitlochry Festival Theatre, Perthshire
Architect: Robin Baker
Project: The David Douglas pavilion was built for Pitlochry’s Scottish Plant Collectors Garden and its design intended to be innovative and promote the use of home-grown timber. The original concept was of a ‘folded leaf’ used as an over arching roof form protecting the sheltered space within. The combination of traditional pegged framing construction and modern sheathed framing, then informed the concept to produce the simple organic form of the building. The entire superstructure is constructed in Scottish timber.
Materials Featured: Douglas Fir, Larch Shingles, Scottish Oak, Ash, Elm.
