Paisley Arts Centre – New Building

paisley-abbey-logos

This is probably an old page, certainly the news is old but I hadn’t seen this page before, this shows you the artists impression of the new Paisley Cultural building to be designed and built into the space that currently is the Museum and Art Galleries.

here is some text which is on the www.glasgowarchitecture.co.uk page.

Page Park has recently completed a pre-feasibility study for Renfrewshire Council. The practice has drawn up plans for a new cultural centre in the town following a brief from the Public-Private Partnership ‘Paisley Vision’. The proposals entail refurbishing the existing Town Hall, Library and refurbishing and extending the Museum to provide improved cultural facilities, with the designs forming part of the wider regeneration strategy for Paisley Town Centre.

The first Phase of the £30m proposals will be the £7m refurbishment and enhancement of the existing town hall. The designs include plans to relocate the central lending library into a wing of the town hall, this would allow the existing library space to be incorporated into a new cultural centre. The Cultural Centre will comprise gallery facilities as well as providing a new 175 seat auditorium with cafe and bar.
