The MAC Belfast

Building Name: MAC, BELFAST
Building Type: CULTURE AND ENTERTAINMENT - CULTURAL CENTRE
Architect: HALL MCKNIGHT
Architect Website: http://www.hallmcknight.com
Clients Website: http://themaclive.com
Town: BELFAST
Year of Completion: 2012
County: ANTRIM
Collection: Architecture
Country: United Kingdom

The building was completed by Hackett Hall McKnight in February 2012 and provides performance spaces, art galleries and supporting facilities. A new public space for the city has been provided in the foyers which recall the tight streetscape of the neighbourhood – a compressed urban environment characterised by top–light. The approach to material and construction evokes a relationship to the robust character of the preceding Victorian merchant city; large scale tough brick buildings. The construction uses the structural insitu concrete as well as the brick as an exposed finish.
