 Gareth Hoskins win £9m Scottish National Gallery comp
Gareth Hoskins Architects have seen off Malcolm Fraser, John McAslan + Partners, LDN, MUMA and Page\Park to win a prestigious competition to redevelop the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh.

The four year project will  entail a full remodelling of the Playfair designed neoclassical  building, rationalising interiors and opening up new galleries to double the display space available for Scottish art.

Improvements to visitor facilities, circulation and energy usage will be incorporated within that work together with more speculative ideas to rethink the neighbouring Princes Street Gardens, illustrate the transformative potential of the scheme.

Hoskins commented: “We and our wider team are incredibly excited at the opportunity of working with the National Galleries to create new spaces for their fantastic collection of Scottish art as part of the ongoing evolution of one of Edinburgh and Playfair’s most significant groupings of cultural buildings.”
