Elder & Cannon complete Preshal Trust community hall
Christian charity the Preshal Trust has taken possession of their new Linthouse headquarters, Glasgow, a single storey pavilion designed by Elder & Cannon.

The £550k brick clad structure stretches to 374 square metres and provides a hall, kitchen and computer room to assist its work in tackling social exclusion in the local area.

Terminating the vista down Aboukir Street the centre is denoted by a large glazed screen punched into its primary façade, delineated by a cruciform steel element it is designed to both signify the main entrance and provide security.

Commenting on the scheme in their design statement Elder & Cannon said: “The remainder of the envelope is formed by a modest brick enclosure with discreet openings, creating a focus on the central feature and simplifying the security of the building. The choice of a good quality brick to the front facade completes the positive image for the centre.”
 The new hall rplaces the charities previous home which was no longer fit for purpose

E+C - wish we had a few more firms like them in Scotland. They don't make it into the press very often but when they do it is only ever due to the quality of their work, which is fabulous. Lovely looking wee building.
