Bearsden garden pavilion set for spring unveil
East Dunbartonshire Council is on track to deliver a garden pavilion within the grounds of Kilmardinny House, Bearsden, by the spring providing for the arts, conferences and weddings.

Overseen by Mast Architects and Clark Contracts the £2.73m build will provide a flexible events space adjoining the A-listed house, which is also being sensitively refurbished as part of the package of works.

Outlining their design approach Mast said: “The concept for the extension to the building has been to create a modern, linear pavilion in counterpoint to the existing building. The architectural language is clearly distinct from the existing building, to ensure that the primacy of the house is respected and maintained.”

The extension will be finished in high-quality handmade bricks and pre-cast concrete panels with a glazed corridor connecting the new extension to the historic home.

The extension has been designed to stand distinct from its historic neighbour

Weddings, really?...Its not a bad attempt but somewhat lacking in joy given its use.
Add a chimney and it could be a crematorium.....

Nice venue for weddings and events. The 'arts' though? In Bearsden? I assume that was just a box that needed to be ticked for the planning application?

Looks harmless enough and doesn't overawe the main building. Could start with sorting the roof drainage and stonework first.

I think this is an elegant solution. I don't see why people are being negative about it. If it was Elder &a Cannon or Page & Park, the naysayers would all be praising it, but because it is Mast it is poor. Tut tut, credit where credit is due.

I'm with #6 Devilsinthedetail
Given the dog's abuse MAST normally get on UR for having a stab at the ever difficult social housing solution, they should be given credit for a cracking wee building here.
Well done MAST
