University to progress plans for new Music Centre
The University of St Andrews has appointed architects Flanagan Lawrence to design its new Music Centre close to the medieval heart of the ancient Scottish university town.
The project will provide a new home for St Andrews’ Music Centre in a building which will enable community access, professional performance, tuition and rehearsal, and the study of music as part of the undergraduate degree programme.
The Centre will be built on a site on Queens Terrace, St Andrews, which currently has temporary buildings and a car park. The new building will restore an historic quad and preserve the features of St Mary’s Quadrangle, while complementing the neighbouring St Regulus Hall student residence and the Bute Building.
The University will work with Flanagan Lawrence to develop the brief, with initial designs expected to be unveiled later this year, and a full public consultation to follow.
Subject to planning permission and the final approval of University Court, it is anticipated the project will be completed in 2018.
