What a splendid new use for a very imposing building. If Aberdeen needs a civic square, surely it should be in front of this building and not in place of Union Terrace Gardens.

I'll be visiting Marischal in about 4 years, I hope it looks amazing =]


Exciting new images have been unveiled of Marischal College transformed into Aberdeen City Council’s new corporate headquarters. The graphics have been produced by Holmes – one of Scotland’s most respected architectural practices, which is designing the scheme to convert the iconic granite building. The images show the archway to the courtyard converted into the new main entrance to the council HQ, a remodelled and re-landscaped courtyard, and an internal perspective of the proposed reception area. A planning application is scheduled to be lodged tomorrow, Friday 23rd May 2008, to convert the archway area leading into the courtyard into the HQ reception and to make a number of minor amendments to the original planning permission. A further planning application will follow at a later date, detailing proposals to clean the building and restore the stonework to the original gleaming granite.
