Langside Halls study to expand the southside's cultural offer
October 8 2020
Langside Halls Trust have asked Hoskins Architects to identify a sustainable long-term future for the A-listed venue on Glasgow's south side.
The practice will undertake a 20-month feasibility study for the Langside Halls, in conjunction with culture and heritage specialists Jura Consultants, to bring forward a viable business and conservation proposal to unlock capital funding next year.
Kevin Kane, chair of Langside Halls Trust said: “We want to expand the Southside’s current cultural and leisure 'offer' and working with our consortium partners – Glad Café, Southside Festival and Southside Film - and others, our ambition is to create a regular cultural and social programme at the Halls, use them as a platform for existing and new organisations in the Southside and continue their traditional role as an affordable community-venue-for-hire.”
Melanie Hay, of Hoskins Architects, commented: “Our study will focus on improving circulation and accessibility for all, identifying key building fabric improvements and assessing the functionality of the existing spaces to develop a sustainable plan for the Halls."
A digital consultation will run in tandem with these efforts, made possible with the support of Glasgow City Council Area Partnerships, Glasgow City Heritage Trust and Architectural Heritage Fund Scotland.
