Balgrayhill Community



Exploring local aspirations for Balgrayhill Community Centre with the aim of facilitating a Community Asset Transfer from current management by Glasgow Life.

Client: MsMissMrs CIC

Duration: 6 Months


Community Engagement and Scoping

icecream architecture have been working on behalf of the team at MsMissMrs CIC to understand local needs and aspirations for the Balgrayhill Community Centre (Springburn, Glasgow) with the aim of re-activating the local community to enfranchise and get the most out of the facility.


Through a series of events, workshops and on-street engagement, the project aims to test ideas around how the local community would like to see the centre best used. Throughout the project the team will identify a body of local people driven to developing the centre in the future, facilitating the Community Asset Transfer of Balgrayhill Community Centre from the current management of Glasgow Life.


Design Feasibility

Coinciding and expanding on the Community Engagement and Scoping Project, icecream architecture will develop a cohesive Community-focused Feasibility proposal. The team will work creatively in the space to test local ideas over an extended period of time, ensuring that the final solutions are relevant and meaningful.
