16.08.2017 - Renovation of Perth City Hall
Perth & Kinross Council, UK
Transforming the building into a modern cultural attraction will allow the Council to deliver on one of the themes of the Perth City Plan: Smart Growth for Perth City to grow the visitor economy of Perth. City Hall will be a major new venue, displaying our own museum and art collections alongside iconic loans from elsewhere and touring exhibitions from the UK and abroad. It will also provide community and learning spaces and create a fantastic meeting point at the very heart of Perth.
The redevelopment of Perth City Hall will feature a 1,500 square-metre exhibition space, consisting of a main gallery and satellite galleries. The proposed scheme will also support interactive displays which enable innovative interpretation approaches, including digital content, and emerging technologies including virtual reality.
A learning suite, high-quality visitor facilities including a café/bar and retail space, access for large or complex works and museum objects, space for the handling and temporary storage of collections and loan material, offices, plant room, circulation space, staff room/kitchen, toilets including accessible disabled toilets and changing places facilities are the major program functions defined for the redevelopment plans.
