Creative Scotland Headquarters

jmarchitects

In 2010, Creative Scotland was formed and following a competitive tender exercise, jmarchitects was awarded the contract to design their new head office. We developed a brief that sought to combine open plan office space, meeting rooms, breakout spaces, informal meeting spaces, cafe and kitchens, with the publicly accessible event space/gallery, board room, sound room and hot-desking lounges. The spaces formed allowed Creative Scotland to diversify their business by accommodating exhibitions, short films, sound installations and meeting and working environments for both visitors and artists, while still enabling the core staff to hot-desk in an open plan flexible environment.
