Architect sought for Rothesay Pavilion revamp
Argyll and Bute Council is seeking a conservation architect to regenerate the Grade A-listed Rothesay Pavilion
The winning team will oversee urgent repairs and value engineer existing Stage D designs by Elder and Cannon to restore the Art Deco seafront leisure centre.
Planned to complete in 2017, the project will upgrade back of house facilities and create an additional performance and community venue within the building.
A multi-function space and let-able offices are also planned for the roof while the ground floor will receive a new café and toilets.
Elder and Cannon was appointed in 2010 to consider design and feasibility options for the concrete structure which was completed by architect James Carrick in 1938.
The decaying venue is still used by the local community more than 70 years after it was built to boost tourism in the area. Its design was selected in a competition adjudicated by Thomas Tait, who also oversaw the contest for the iconic Bexhill De La Warr Pavilion.
The deadline for expressions of interest is 18 August.
