Rest and Be Thankful Heritage Project 22 Jul 2017 – 17 Sep
Level Two

The Rest and be Thankful is known throughout the motorsport world as a venue of international significance. This famous road is located just off the A83 in the south of Argyll and Bute, a road that connects the western shore of Loch Lomond, to Campbeltown at the southern end of the Kintyre peninsula.

KennedyTwaddle Architects has designed an iconic multi-purpose building that will celebrate Scottish motorsports heritage. The aim is for it to be a destination building housing a permanent exhibition and education centre, whilst also providing an events space and multi-use facilities available to local businesses. Sitting within the majestic landscape, the form of the building has been inspired by the surroundings while remaining sympathetic to its context. A subtle design, quiet but visually exciting, it focuses on accentuating the natural amphitheatre of the valley by framing the views south.

This exhibition demonstrates the full potential of the project and the creative ambition of all involved.
