The Duncairn Centre for Culture & Arts – Tour

The Duncairn Arts Centre is North Belfast’s first purpose built arts facility. It was opened in January 2014 following renovation of the Grade B+ listed former 19th century church. The church was designed in 1862 by leading architect W J Barre, who was also responsible for Belfast’s Albert Memorial Clock and Ulster Hall.

Doherty Architects successfully responded to the complex challenge of providing new enclosed functions within the main church space whilst retaining the character of the original structure. The project received a commendation at the 2014 RSUA bi-annual awards ceremony and won a RICS NI conservation award in 2015.
