Peacock Visual Arts Centre

Brisac Gonzalez as Architects

The strategy to seamlessly integrate the new building for Peacock Visual Arts building and Union Terrace Gardens is crucial.


The building is situated on three stepped terraces within the Gardens. This setting and an imposed constraint to maintain views of His Majesty’s Theatre from Union Street, poses a unique condition where the building is entered from the top down via the roof plane, which is level with the street. The roof doubles as an expansive public terrace, where a host of different outdoor activities will take place. In addition to printmaking workshops, exhibition space, television studio, offices, and restaurant, the new premises will also house Aberdeen City council’s arts development and education, and Citymoves Dance Space. The site strategy permits an abundance of natural light to these diverse activities.
