ARCHITECT SOUGHT FOR HILL HOUSE VISITOR CENTRE28 April 2016
AN ARCHITECT IS REQUIRED FOR THE NATIONAL TRUST FOR SCOTLAND TO DEVELOP A TEMPORARY VISITOR CENTRE, HILL HOUSE, HELENSBURGH. THE PROJECT, EXPECTED TO BE COMPLETE IN 2017 IS AIMING TO INCREASE VISITOR NUMBERS AND IMPROVE THE AGEING FACILITIES.
The contract notice states: ‘We wish to appoint an architect to design a statement temporary building which complements the Hill House and which is so exciting in itself that it significantly raises the profile of the property and increases visitor numbers to the site.’ The project will look to add an admissions area, shops, and offices.
It continues: ‘The temporary building should be as innovative and pioneering in 21st century terms as the Hill House itself was considered in the early 20th century. The introduction of a temporary building would provide the opportunity to develop a design which is much more adventurous than might be suitable for a permanent building; and which would allow for promotion and attraction of visitors in its own right.’
Applicants re to complete a 1 page narrative outlining interest in the job, priory experience and approach. The deadline for narratives is 29th April 12noon
