Shift in identity for architecture firm
Rebrand helps Hoskins build on global plans
Mr Hoskins, who set up his eponymous firm in Glasgow in 1998, said the change to Hoskins Architects was part of the development of the practice which recently opened a studio in Berlin.
The Glasgow studio recently relocated to the creative industries hub South Block in Osborne Street. Hoskins Architects now employs 40 skilled people across its two studios and has a strong portfolio in major cultural and heritage initiatives; public sector projects; community and healthcare; and large scale regeneration and commercial projects.
The company has worked on many high profile projects around the world including London’s V&A Museum; the Culloden Battlefield Visitor Centre; Robin House Children’s Hospice in Balloch; Mareel Concert Hall in Shetland; and the first ever Scottish Pavilion for the Venice Biennale.
It is currently involved in projects in four world heritage sites which are spearheading its international expansion. It is onsite with the next phase of the National Museum of Scotland and is involved in two major regeneration projects in St Andrew Square.
The practice is working on the new Scottish Collection Gallery for the National Galleries and on Aberdeen Art Gallery’s redevelopment. In London it is involved with the Bird College of Dance Music and Theatre. The Berlin studio is working on the World Museum in Vienna and Berlin’s City Library.
Gareth Hoskins, managing director said: “I am incredibly proud of our achievements over the past 17 years and I am excited about our new identity and the wider creative opportunities we have in the international field.
“We have a great team of people at Hoskins Architects and our portfolio of award-winning designs is a testament to our belief that good architecture benefits people and places in profound ways.
“We work hard to make buildings and spaces great and we are all focused on creating architecture that enriches its environment and connects to the past, whilst at the same time being relevant and valuable to the people who use it.”
