Page\Park wins Dunoon Burgh Hall restoration job

Page\Park has won a competition to redevelop Dunoon’s Burgh Hall

The Glasgow-based company beat Elder and Cannon, ZM Architecture and Gareth Hoskins Architects to win the phased restoration job.

The project – spearheaded by Dunoon-raised architect John McAslan – aims to transform the disused 1873 building into a cross-disciplinary arts venue and a multi-purpose community centre, to open in 2015.

The project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), Historic Scotland and the Architecture Heritage Fund. A stage II HLF application will be made later this year and a further £1.2 million is being sought.

Brian Park, of Page\Park, said: ‘This project has had a meaningful impact in Dunoon. Bringing the building back into partial use and its further development will be significant to the town.’

McAslan added: ‘We had a strong shortlist but Brian Park and his team were unanimously selected.’

McAslan judged the competition with AJ deputy editor Rory Olcayto, Dunoon Burgh Hall Project Group chairman Colin Macpherson and Strathclyde Building Preservation Trust project co-ordinator, Sarah MacKinnon.
