St Andrews University opens music centre design contest

  • Comment

The University of St Andrews has announced a design competition for a new music centre

Practical and cost-effective proposals demonstrating both ‘flair and innovation’ are sought for the new facility which will be located on historic Queen’s Terrace.

The project will create a new home for the university’s music centre which is currently based inside the iconic 1828 Younger Hall (pictured) on North Street.

Proposals for the Queen’s Terrace site must reflect surrounding heritage assets which include the 1868 St Regulus Hall student residence, the Bute Building former medical school, and nearby St Mary’s Quadrangle.

According to the contract notice: ‘Proposals must be suitably developed to allow project concept costs and construction strategies to be prepared as well as addressing issues of sustainability, operations and maintenance.’

Participants must submit a design ethos statement and examples of similar heritage and musical facility projects.

Entries will be judged on their response to the brief, design quality, spatial provision, planning impact, innovation, sustainability and fees.

The winner will draw up plans to RIBA Stage 2 and may develop the project further alongside a design team appointed separately by the university.

The deadline for requests to participate is 12noon on 13 November.
