BLACK MOUNTAIN SHARED
SPACE PROJECT

McGurk Architects acquired planning approval for this community building which promotes cross-community good relations in the Upper Springfield/Upper Shankill area of Belfast. The project is designed to offer new opportunities and resources to the local area, providing spaces for enterprise, business, performing arts, education, leisure, work, play and enjoyment of the local area. The aim is to maximise and capitalise upon the potential of the area and offer opportunities for learning and development regardless of age, race, creed or background. The entrance concourse area is a bright welcoming space orientated to frame views of the surrounding areas with places for socialising and sharing ideas, interests and opinions.
