Client: Hub West Scotland
£19.3m headquarters for West Dunbartonshire Council delivered on behalf of hub West Scotland with Keppie Design.
The Castle Street project sees the A-listed façade of Dumbarton Burgh Hall retained as a frontage for a new office block housing 500 staff.
The curtilage of the existing facade forms the main entrance and new ‘one-stop shop’ while also housing a new civic space and training rooms on the upper floor. The project incorporates a central atrium space creating a link between ‘old and new’ and providing a social heart to the workplace which supports the naturally ventilated, open plan office space. An enhanced public realm space on Church Street will create the setting for the restored façade with a new, terraced, landscaped amenity space formed off Castle Street.
