We asked architects, Elder & Cannon, who are responsible for designing the current restoration of Rothesay Pavilion, to show us what the new spaces in the Pavilion will look like when it reopens in 2019. Two of the spaces we particularly wanted to see are the music and media studio on the rooftop and the second venue on the lower ground floor.
ROOFTOP MUSIC & MEDIA STUDIO
The rooftop music and media studio will be the home base for 45RPM and will provide facilities for lessons and training, rehearsals, recording and film making.
Of course not everything will happen in the rooftop studio and the plan is that the young people who get involved with 45RPM will also have the opportunity to learn about programming and staging their own events, both in the Pavilion and elsewhere. With this in mind, we are particularly excited about the creation of a new second venue within Rothesay Pavilion which will be on the lower ground floor, with the entrance from MacKinlay Street. This space will have its own stage and bar and will take up to 100 people - so ideal not only for regular young band/DJ nights but also for folk nights, a jazz club, and comedy events and to hire for private parties.
