Furneaux Stewart

London-based Furneaux Stewart has designed this cafe on one of Britain's highest sites.The £6 million glass and granite block on Mount Snowdon is at the end of the mountain railway, the only access point to the 1,085m peak, which can be buffeted by 170 mile-an-hour winds.

The cafe will include two lobby areas, a kitchen and rest areas for train staff.Architect Dominique Haslam said work could only take place between April and October and carrying materials on the train would be difficult.The cafe will replace one by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis if Snowdon National Park Authority gives it the go ahead in October.
