The center’s restaurant was built using local Scottish timber, glass and stone, and it offers astonishing views of the gardens. The building’s educational facilities include many interactive displays that allow visitors to learn about the garden’s research and conservation work in Scotland.

Ted Cullinan created Edward Cullinan Architects in 1965. Since then the London-based studio has been committed to designing ’long-life, loose fit, low-energy buildings’ with a strong commitment to social sustainability.
