Page\Park win Dunoon Burgh Hall competition
Page\Park are to refurbish Dunoon Burgh Hall after being unanimously selected from a shortlist comprising ZM, Gareth Hoskins, Elder + Cannon, Holmes Miller and Robert Potter and Partners.

Driven by Dunoon raised architect John McAslan, who heads the John McAslan Family Trust, the scheme will entail transformation of the derelict hall into a £1.5m community centre by 2015.

Commenting on the scheme Brian Park said: “This project fits very well with our portfolio and will allow us to apply a range of relevant experience from within our team including conservation expertise, diverse involvement with the arts and culture sector and a long track record of working on projects which are at the heart of communities away from our major Scottish cities.

“This project has already had a meaningful impact within Dunoon bringing the building back into partial use and its further development will be significant as a contributor to economic and community life in the town.”

@UR,

What about the other(s) on the shortlist? Do they not get a mention?

mmm.......if the attached drawing represents the standard of presentation that won the commission then it's probably best the others are not mentioned.

Just a full list of the shortlisted architects is sufficient, instead of just mentioning the usual suspects.

c'mon david, then there would be the danger of people thinking there are acutally other architects practicing in this country!
