Kirkintilloch community hall opens its doors

Designed by macmon architects on behalf of hub West Scotland the scheme replaces an existing centre with a more flexible space; including new meeting rooms, cafe and a central hall for use by local groups and organisations. In a statement macmon said: “The design is simple and rational with a robust masonry public façade and a softer timber façade addressing an enclosed community courtyard and landscaped garden to the rear of the building.

The building was constructed by Fleming Buildings, structural engineers Morgan Sindall, services engineers Tüd Süd Wallace Whittle and quantity surveyors Allan and Hanel.
