Architect sought for Springburn Winter Gardens restoration
February 1 2018
In recent months the 116-year old steel frame has been stabilized, guaranteeing the structural integrity of what remains before plans for a full restoration are enacted.
In a statement the group wrote: “Our ambitious plans to save and repurpose these iconic A-listed Winter Gardens are progressing. We are now seeking an architect to take designs to RIBA Stage 1 alongside heritage interpretation expertise.”
This follows an earlier ideas contest designed to seek ways of bringing the A-listed winter gardens back into sustainable use with suggested designs including a garden maze and a moveable ‘memory box’ arranged on its own customised tracks.
Expressions of interest and applications can be made via email@example.com by 26 February.

Could they not just engage a suitable architect and pay them for their services? Bit of a novel idea these days.
