Maryhill Burgh Halls win Civic Trust Award
JM Architects and Maryhill Burgh halls Trust are celebrating after the Halls won out in a competition organised by the Scottish Civic Trust to recognise schemes which have most benefitted their local communities.

In addition to recognition for the building itself a Civic Champion accolade was also handed to Hunter Reid for his role as project coordinator.

Eight years of renovation work has seen creation of a modernised hall, the addition of 10,000sq/ft of office space, recording studios, nursery and meeting rooms within the Maryhill complex.

Angus Kerr, SCT chairman and judge, said: “This is a fantastic civic building which has involved the community at every stage.

 “Hunter has had a huge impact on many different communities and on a national level, improving the quality of housing, leading projects to restore historic buildings, and inspiring local people to get involved to improve their own environment.”

In addition to the Halls Holmes Miller, Malcolm Fraser and Page\Park were commended for their work at Lambhill Stables, Linlithgow Burgh hall and Fair Maid’s House.

Elevations to Maryhill Road are pretty brutal, don't you think? But a good community project, I agree.
is this it

This really is a fantastic refurbishment - that combines sensitive restoration with neatly detailed contemporary design... and will hopefully spark more renewal within the area...
