Piano Showroom (Former)

 

As in every city, there’s always a street with a building that contains a history behind it. The 520, Previously a piano showroom (former), then it became a cinema (Vitagraph, King’s, Newscine, Curzon, Curzon Classic and Tatler), to be a nightclub.

When we first saw the building, it didn’t look like something interesting, apart from the outside details in Sauchiehall and Renfrew Street, such as the greek details, the muses, the bust of Beethoven in the rear entrance of the building, so in the beginning we had a bit of a struggle to find inside images of the building, but we did find several detailed plans, sections and elevations of the 520, that lead as to the development of a proposal for the building the at risk.
