Lomond Shores Imax

Design: Page & Park Architects

Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, established as Scotland’s first National Park in 2002.

This is the largest of three buildings that together make up the Lomond Shores development, constructed on a disused gravel pit at the southern end of the Loch. Inspired by ancinet Scottish building form, The Broch.

The adjacent retail centre building is designed by PJMP Architects and Loch Lomond Gateway & Orientation Centre is designed by Bennetts Associates (based in London).

Imax Cinema Complex

One of page & park architects’ more unusual designs, contemporaneous with the excellent and restrained Museum of Country Life, this building’s frivolity gives it some tough issues to resolve.

Latterly the organic flavour has returned with this architecture practice’s Maggie’s Highlands cancer care facility in Inverness.

The Imax Cinema Loch Lomond design was by Page & Park Architects, an award-winning architecture studio based in Glasgow.

Balloch West Dunbartonshire

Balloch – a village in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland:

Balloch comes from either the Gaelic word baile which means village or hamlet, or the Gaelic bealach meaning “a pass”. Using the former derivation, Balloch means “village on the loch”, i.e. the nearby Loch Lomond, but this would be Baile Loch.
