Vine Trust Barge

NORR Consultants Ltd

Archial worked on behalf of The Vine Trust charity on the refit of a former MOD vessel, at a permanent mooring in Leith. The project includes teaching areas, cinema, exhibition space and a multipurpose outdoor performance stage, as well as office accommodation.

In contrast to the heavy, and tired industrial look of the existing ship, new insertions of crisp glass and timber volumes sit within the shell of the old ship, with varying levels of transparency attenuated by western red cedar timber slats.

The project has won GIA Best Education Prize, Civic Trust Award and Civic Trust Community Impact Award.
