Royal Highland Showground draws up plans for flexible pavilion
June 5 2018
Holmes Miller Architects are the latest design team to carry the baton for the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland in their long-running bid to build a new pavilion at Ingliston.
The practice has prepared fresh plans for the grounds, superseding earlier designs by 3DReid, conceiving a versatile venue with all the flexibility required of a multi-use events space.
Stretching to 1,100sq/m the 350-seat elevated pavilion will sit within the footprint of the old MacRobert pavilion, commanding clear lines of sight to both the main ring and bridge from its hall. Taking the form of a central partitional events space with entrance foyers to the east and west it will include its own kitchen and rest areas.
In a blog post the architects wrote: “The high quality exterior palette will consist of high quality facing brick and pre-cast concrete feature panels carrying references to the provenance & history of the 1784 organisation. A covered terrace and landscaped informal seating areas will complete an external program designed to create a unique vantage point.”
Completion is anticipated ahead of the 2020 Royal Highland Show.
