A former cash and carry in the Speirs Wharf regeneration area of North Glasgow has been remodelled and refurbished by the National Theatre of Scotland to create Rockvilla, a new centre for creativity, production and talent development.
The latest in a growing number of cultural organisation driving regeneration in this area of North Glasgow, The National Theatre of Scotland moved in to their new permanent home in November 2016. Other cultural tenants include Scottish Opera, the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Glasgow Sculpture Studios, The Glue Factory and The Whisky Bond.
Designed by Hoskins Architects, approximately 3700 sq. metres of space was created over two levels, allowing the company to house all its rehearsal and production activity under one roof.
The canal-side building provides the Company and the Scottish theatre sector with a flexible, fit for purpose space with three rehearsal rooms of varying scales, creative development spaces, a learning and community suite, a working wardrobe facility, production workshop and technical store, office space, meeting room facilities and social areas.
