Consultation underway for Langside Halls community hub & events space
February 10 2021
A 20-week feasibility study into the future of Langside Halls in Glasgow's south side has culminated in the publication of early concept designs online.
The community engagement exercise will run until 28 February, showcasing plans by Hoskins Architects and Jura Consultants to transform the venue as a hub for cultural and social programmes and organisations.
Improvements would make the halls fully accessible and increase the range of spaces suitable for community-hire as well as a new entrance hall to enhance the sense of arrival.
Led by Langside Halls Trust with the support of Glasgow City Heritage Trust and the Architectural Heritage Fund the work will be undertaken in partnership with Glad Café, Southside Fringe and Southside Film Festival.
Trust chair Kevin Kane said: “The feasibility study proposals seek to breathe new life into Langside Halls and make them a fully accessible and attractive venue for communities across the South Side. The Trust wants to share the proposals with the wider community and to hear what folks and local organisations think of them – as well as what would make them use the Halls more”.
Langside Halls was forced to close in April 2017 following failure of a boiler, since which Glasgow City Council has invested £300k to carry out essential repairs.
