Barrhill Memorial Hall

The alteration and refurbishment of the existing Barrhill Memorial Hall is intended to re-establish the building as a focal point.

Much attention has been devoted to understanding the historic role of the Memorial Hall and both its architectural and social significance in Barrhill. The Hall was originally designed by the notable Scottish architect James Miller and it is a priority to preserve a building in this Arts and Crafts architectural style, which was rarely employed by Miller.

We have designed an extension which provides a new public entrance, a new kitchen and a multi-functional community space; all designed to welcome people in.

The new design provides spaces for existing community functions and allows the possibility for new uses and groups to develop. The environmental performance of the building was improved and issues of sustainability addressed through thorough upgrades of the buildings fabric.
