Plans tabled for £5m Briggait Creation Centre
February 9 2016
The Briggait Creation Centre will play host to circus, street theatre and trapeze artists and is the second phase of development at the site following a £6.8m refurbishment of the Briggait in 2009.
Embedded within the remaining portion of A-listed market halls built in 1889 and 1904, as well as a gap site facing Clyde Street, the 12,000sq/ft space will accommodate up to 600 performers.
In a statement Collective Architecture wrote: “The extension has an expressive form projecting dynamically over the pavement and reaching out towards the river exploiting the Clyde promenade location.
“The form has been expressed as stacked boxes representing the distinct spaces within and the glazing floats freely providing dramatic views while drawing light deep into the large studio volumes within and giving clues as to the dynamic activities within. A dramatic atrium brings light and social space into the heart of the development and allows the vital heritage of the site to be experienced.”
Collective were appointed to the design team back in April.
