Former North Church of St. Andrew, Aberdeen

Formerly the North Church, Aberdeen Arts Centre lies on King Street and is regarded as the finest work of local architect John Smith (1781 - 1852). Built 1829-30, the building benefits from a portico supported in Ionic columns and reflects Smith's great attention to detail. Internally little of Smith's interiors remain following the conversion to the Arts Centre in the 1950s. The centre comprises a 350-seat theatre and meetings rooms, used for performances, talks, conferences and club meetings, together with display space for both local artists and touring exhibitions.
