The Category B listed Kelvin Hall, was originally built in 1927 as a multi-function exhibition and events venue. The primary aim of the redevelopment was to find a sustainable long-term use for this historic piece of built fabric in the heart of the West End of Glasgow.
Old exterior walls were re-imagined as interior features and existing vaults were re-roofed and re-glazed; flooding them with light for the first time in years. All changes allow users to experience and understand the past of the building while experiencing its new modern facilities.
"By working within the footprint of the existing building our main intervention was to create a new fully accessible entrance on Dumbarton Road. This opens up the previously blank façade to the River Kelvin, thus creating a new and invigorated connection to the wider city." Page/Park Architects
