Speirs Locks Studio Building

Four, nondescript, 1980s portal frame buildings have been skilfully and economically transformed into new technical teaching areas, including design studios, teaching rooms, a wardrobe department with paint, timber and stage workshops for the Royal Academy of Music and Drama.

Speirs Locks Studio

It is a strongly detailed transformation with an industrial aesthetic. Access is organised on two levels providing views down to the workshops from the upper level. A separate entrance facilitates access to four new, naturally lit, studios for students of contemporary ballet and musical theatre.

The building has been re-roofed, and new windows and profiled cladding further enhance its energy efficiency. A large, brightly painted sign, direct onto the existing brickwork marks the advent of this important new cultural asset for this area of Glasgow.
