ART PARK Glasgow

ART PARK Glasgow is a bold vision to define Bellahouston Park as a centerpiece venue, on a national basis, for the outdoor installation of art, design and architecture in the landscape.

Over the past few years, the House has promoted a number of successful public art competitions which have led to the installation of unusual art works in the park.

The House works closely with the City’s Department of Land Services in the creation of art and play objects, both temporary and permanent, in Bellahouston Park.

The award-winning Grounds for Play; Glasshouse; AMAZE; Glasgow Roots; Homage to Shipbuilding; Cloud and Banner; Date Palms and Doocot are among the many works to be discovered in the ART PARK Glasgow.

Studio Pavilion

Phase 1 of a new urban retreat for artists based adjacent to House for an Art Lover which is a combination of gallery, large artists’ studio with access to adjoining studio workshop facilities and extensive ARTsheds in the courtyard area for artists-in-residence. Designed by ZM architecture, the pavilion adds to the campus of arts and heritage facilities already in use through the adaptation of vacated buildings, structures and external spaces.

The site is defined by its park land setting and specifically the walled enclosures that originally formed the kitchen garden and stables to Ibroxhill House. The walled garden is now the most rarefied of environments, providing a stunning visual surrounding through the yearly cycle of horticultural display.

Conceived as a series of insertions behind the southern boundary to the walled garden, the studio is the first in a proposed framework of buildings that explore the connection between internal and external space and the relationship between garden and pavilion.

Building construction is deliberately simple, employing traditional techniques and materials. A contrasting masonry spine running parallel to the existing boundary wall provides a new zone of enclosure. Space is then formed by an exposed timber structure spanning between new and existing walls.

The defining feature of the pavilion is a large roof lantern. Orientated on the diagonal to admit true north light, the alignment sets out structural geometry and singularly defines the volume to the studio below. While pragmatic in function, the lantern has a bold sculptural quality when viewed from the walled garden, providing a vertical counterpoint to the horizontality of the boundary walls.

Intermediate space created between the new studio and adjacent buildings becomes a new enclosed courtyard garden. These garden spaces form ‘external rooms’ that allow activities within the studio to extend out into the out doors while also providing opportunity for new horticultural experimentation.

House for an Art Lover Heritage Centre

The Heritage Centre is situated within the former Stables and ‘Doocote’ of Ibroxhill House, a mansion which stood on the footprint of what is now House for an Art Lover. Exhibitions in the Centre tell of the growth of ‘Greater Govan’ and of Bellahouston Park which housed the modernist British Empire Exhibition in 1938 and attracted 12.5 million people. An animated ‘fly over’ of a digital model shows the scale and grandeur of that Exhibition. From the early country estates of affluent landowners, to the growth of shipbuilding, architecture and public monuments - Govan was the gateway to Glasgow and a template for its burgeoning success before being absorbed into the city in 1912.
