Westbourne Centre Barrhead Building

The project comprises of the refurbishment and extension of an existing and disparate storage building for jm architects’ client Voluntary Action. The accommodation comprises of a series of office spaces and communal areas for VA and other local community groups. Key communal resources include a double height café and a large central circulation area which is lit by an internal courtyard.

The primary façade of the building is clad in Western Red Cedar, offering a consolidated and softened surface to the building’s context. Folding, sliding shutters open to reveal four letable office spaces within the building and act to animate the façade between day and night. Open-mesh shutters, which fold and slide to the lower café perimeter and VA offices, protect the building’s glazed façades and provide transparent relief to the primarily ‘roller-shuttered’ fronts of surrounding buildings.
