VILLAGE HALL EXTENSION
Maxwell Memorial Hall Committee
Community Consultation held Aug 2018
Flockhart Architects were selected in June 2017 to carry out a feasibility study & community consultation for the refurbishment and extension of this village hall in the picturesque village of Kirkgunzeon. The hall is run by a local committee who wish to safeguard the functioning of the hall and develop its use for future generations. The hall is currently in a very poor state of repair and redevelopment is required in order to improve the facilities, increase the hall capacity and make the building more accessible.
A number of options were considered, however the committee favoured a new west facing extension which connects & opens up the existing hall to the playing field to the west. The extension provides a new accessible entrance, a new reception/lounge, improved toilet and shower facilities and kitchen/bar area. The installation of a collapsible stage in the existing hall would bring the green room into the main space during large community events such as ceilidhs and weddings.
