The Egg Shed by OCA

The new Egg Shed visitor and community centre by OCA aims to create a tourist destination and community resource, bringing jobs and economic benefit to the area.
The village of Ardrishaig on Scotland’s west coast, where Egg Shed is located, has suffered an economic decline since its heyday as a bustling harbour for both passenger and freight traffic. An existing building on the site, identified as being of significant heritage value, was creatively reused in the new development; providing a historical springboard from which the design of the new building took shape, creating new opportunities for the village.


This project has been longlisted in the rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
