Kielder Cycle Centre, Northumberland
Contemporary Purpose Built Mountain Bike Centre
The Kielder Cycle Centre is a contemporary purpose built mountain bike centre including secure storage, workshop, office space and shop.
Situated in the heart of the picturesque Kielder forest, the design responds to the sensitive nature of the site and enhances both its immediate and wider setting.
The use of a mono-pitch roof responds directly to the site topography and the materials were carefully selected to respect the forest environment.
Working closely with the Forestry Commission the building was designed to promote the use of locally sourced timber which was of paramount consideration in the decisions regarding construction techniques as well as both internal and external aesthetic finish.
