The Dunbar Battery and Harbour is owned by the Dunbar Harbour Trust, a charity whose remit involves the social welfare, public education and operation of the harbour. The project undertook the regeneration of the battery, along with the creation of a new public gathering space – one that would promote education and public art, while also conserving a Listed Building.
rankinfraser was lead consultant for all stages of the design and delivery of this project. The design sought to amplify the existing spatial character while transforming the space into a multi-functioning public arena. For example, the most significant new structure, the amphitheatre, is integrated into the void formed by the walls of the former hospital so as to leave the trace of the hospital untouched and the views unimpeded.
