Visitors to the island of Lewis situated in Scotland's Outer Hebrides will be able to access a beautifully designed new seafront visitor center building that was designed as part of a collaboration between Scotland-based Dualchas Architects and Norwegian company Reiulf Ramstad Arkitekter.

This seafront visitor center building stands out due to its smoky appearance, the result of the use of stone blocks that aesthetically blend in perfectly with the surrounding landscape. The building is also designed to expose visitors to the full power of the wind, giving them an appreciation of the Atlantic Ocean's might. The building is designed to promote the local area and also welcome researchers studying the community.

This visitor center building is a great example of touristic architecture taking into account the aesthetics of the surrounding landscape.
