‘Rescue and Reuse’


‘Rescue and Reuse’

It is great to see three Page\Park projects feature in this new RIBA publication ‘Rescue and Reuse’.

Jointly commissioned by the RIBA and the Architectural Heritage Fund, the publication celebrates the successful integration of contemporary intervention and design within a historic context – something which resonates through much of our work.

The restoration of Fairfield Shipyard offices is mentioned in the ‘Work’ chapter of the book focusing on the rescue of our industrial heritage.

The restoration and redevelopment of Kelvingrove Bandstand and Amphitheatre in Glasgow is one of the case studies featured under the ‘Play’ chapter, illustrated by the opening concert celebrating the start of the 2014 Commonwealth Games.

And finally, under ‘Learn’, our work at Castle Mills Works in Edinburgh for the Edinburgh Printmakers looks ahead to the imminent opening of this new facility which houses print and production spaces, an education suite, gallery and café within the remaining remnant of the North British Rubber Company.

Featuring projects supported by the Architectural Heritage Fund from across the UK, ‘Rescue and Reuse’ is a timely reminder of how adaptable our historic buildings are to meet today’s needs, and that inventive architectural solutions – coupled with passionate clients – can ensure that these buildings enjoy sustainable futures.
