History + Heritage
The Pyramid at Anderston was designed by Glasgow architects Honeyman, Jack and Robertson for The Church of Scotland, and was completed in 1968, as part of the redevelopment of the Anderston area. The building is home to twenty two rooms – used as meeting and workspaces as well as three larger community halls, including the beautiful Sanctuary space. All our community spaces are available to hire.
From 1968 to 2019 the building operated as the Anderston Kelvingrove Parish Church. In 2018, The Pyramid at Anderston Trust formed as a community membership organisation.
In 2019, The Pyramid at Anderston Trust purchased the building with a grant award from the Scottish Land Fund to ensure that The Pyramid continued to function as a community space at the heart of the Anderston neighbourhood.
In June 2020 we secured a £1.1 million award from the National Lottery Community Fund to undertake a phased programme of building improvements and renovation. The first phase of work began on site in late 2021 with the installation of a platform lift into our main foyer space.
We have big plans for The Pyramid! This first phase of capital works will save the building from further deterioration and offer improved access and facilities to all our community spaces for everyone; ensuring The Pyramid continues to be the hub of our community for years to come.
