University of Stirling advance garden pavilion gateway

The University of Stirling has advanced plans for a freestanding canopy pavilion within the courtyard of the 1970s Cottrell Building.

Design proposals drawn up by James Paul Associates call for the landscaped space to be repurposed as a social and learning hub adjacent to the newly completed bus station, helping to form a unified campus gateway.

In a statement the applicants wrote: “The guiding design principles for these proposals have been largely informed through providing an internal garden that blurs the boundaries between internal and external learning spaces.”

Built using timber lined cantilevered beams the pavilion will be finished in glass curtain walling to the east and west, abutting the current building to the north and south, the garden space will be top-lit by a linear rooflight and circular skylights.

Complementary external landscape elements are being undertaken by Ian White Associates.
