November 6 2017cultural quarter’ to the east of the town’s historic centre.
Devised in lockstep with moves to relocate Kilmarnock Academy the initiative sought to tie together local landmarks such as the Dick Institute and Palace Theatre, fostering creative synergies between both institutions in the process.
David Ross, Keppie’s design director said: “It’s a very exciting time for the town. There is a palpable sense of positive anticipation in the local community born out of the Council’s desire to develop a unique identity for the town based on vibrant and connected public space. Our vision for the cultural quarter captures that spirit.”
Karl Doroszenko from East Ayrshire Council said: “The study generated a lot of good ideas, stimulated creative thinking and will be invaluable as we look towards a new, forward thinking, placemaking plan for Kilmarnock Town Centre”.
The masterplan aims to build on recent momentum on the town created by projects such as The Halo on Hill Street and a town centre improvement study being undertaken by TGP.
