Snowdon Summit Building
wins RIBA Award

Firing Line

As interpretation designers for the project, Furneaux Stewart are part of the team which created the new Snowdon Summit building, known as ‘Hafod Eryri’.

We provided branding and key interpretation elements, both externally and internally, including specially commissioned poetry incised into the granite walls, ‘fascinating facts’ imbedded in the floor, ‘whispering windows’ and illustrative tabletops.

Our aim was to establish an achievable mix of appealing media that respected and complemented the sense of place of the mountain and the sustainable nature of the building.
