The building was acquired and developed in November 2016 with the support of Scottish Government’s Regeneration Capital Grant Funding (RCGF). This work is ongoing and we are currently fundraising to fix the roof and improve the thermal performance of the building.
We have broken up the design and development process of the building into phases that have been punctuated by different activities in the space – a summer school, wedding, festival hub and exhiibitions. This activity has allowed to test the space through occupation and informed our understanding of its potential and design decisions.
We plan for the building to be open by October 2018.
These are photos of the development of the building as it has progressed.
