An Lanntair Arts Centre

An Lanntair Arts Centre
2006
ASA  Listed Building 2006 Situated prominently on Stornoway's waterfront, An Lanntair (gaelic for Lantern) provides flexible, multi-use space for performing and visual arts. It grows out of the existing townscape to mark an important corner with a beacon form and shapes a public square to the sheltered northern side of the site. Social spaces wrap fluidly around the auditorium – uniquely, the boundaries between the two can “dissolve” through the use of large “flown” acoustic screens, with the auditorium transforming from a traditional “closed box” to flow freely into the surrounding bar/restaurant/foyer volumes.
