Allander Leisure Centre and Adult Day Care Centre in Bearsden

published in sb magazine 1/2024

The Allander Leisure Centre had been a recreational hub for over 40 years, hosting countless swimming ­galas, football birthday parties, nightly squash challenges, coffee mornings and fetes. For a similarly long time, Kelvinbank Resource Centre had been a home from home for adults with learning challenges, dementia, ­autism and physical disabilities. The new Allander designed by Holmes Miller seeks to bring these institutions together. It provides a stimulating environment which delivers the totality of experiences necessary to care for people with learning challenges.
