GARETH HOSKINS ARCHITECTS
Gareth Hoskins set up GHA, now Gareth Hoskins Architects, in 1998 after six years as an associate at Penoyre & Prasad in London. The Glasgowbased practice now employs more than 20 staff.
Its key buildings include the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Interpretation Centre at The Lighthouse in Glasgow, Hutchesons' Hall (the headquarters for the National Trust for Scotland), also in Glasgow, and the Durham Light Infantry Museum & Art Centre. The practice has won a number of high-profile competitions, including the V&A and RIBA Architecture Gallery in London, the masterplan for the A-listed Royal Museum in Edinburgh, and the visitor and interpretation centre for the National Trust for Scotland at Culloden battlefield. Communitybased projects include the Families' Reception Centre in Edinburgh and the £6 million Easterhouse Arts Factory on the outskirts of Glasgow, which was commended by the Scottish Arts Council as a model of accessibility and is due to be home to the National Theatre of Scotland. The practice has won a competition to design a hospice for terminally ill children, which will be built in the sensitive environment of Loch Lomond National Park.
