March 30 2015Gareth Hoskins Architects designed headquarters for The National Theatre of Scotland at Speirs Wharf is to get underway in July for completion next spring.
Part of Glasgow’s North Quarter project the £5.875m scheme will draw together rehearsal and technical spaces together under one roof for the first time and bring a redundant building back into use.
Chris Coleman-Smith, director of Gareth Hoskins Architects said: “We are excited by the ambition of the organisation to create theatre on a national and international scale that is contemporary, confident and forward-looking and we aim to deliver a building that reflects that ambition.
“The new facility is designed to meet both their immediate and long term requirements, facilitating the continued evolution, development and growth of the National Theatre of Scotland, and contributing to the sustainable regeneration of the area.”
The cultural hub is being built within a repurposed warehouse complete with new cladding, a roof and biomass boiler and will be a centre for the conception, development and rehearsal of new work although it will not be a performance space.
