Reiach & Hall set out Kelvin Hall studio vision
September 1 2021
The 4,435sq/m production facility would serve a flourishing screen industry in the city which has welcomed big-name productions including Indiana Jones 5 and The Flash in recent weeks and complement the Moving Image Archive drawn from the National Libraries of Scotland.
As part of a long-term vision by Glasgow City Council to position the Kelvin Hall as a creative hub the remodelling will transform the hangar-like space into a permanent studio complete with its own dedicated production infrastructure such as costume stores, green rooms and workshops.
The scope of work also extends to the main entrance including space for a dining hall and a further 6,000sq/m of film and production space.
In a statement, the practice wrote: "The section through the proposed studio illustrates the full volume of the space to the underside of the existing roof. An acoustic seal to the underside of the roof light is required to minimise noise interference from the outside and an independent structural steel frame will be installed within the volume of the studio to support lighting rigs, scenery hoists and associated equipment.
"High-level maintenance walkways will span the perimeter of the walls on two sides with access to the production suite rooms behind. The studio will be 28m by 30m in dimensions and have room for a retractable audience seating area for approximately 500 people."
The production facility will be up and running next year following on from a renovation of the western vault by Page\Park in 2017.
Attention has now turned to the remaining vaults at the Kelvin Hall following transformation of the western element into a recreation facility and museum
