The original classroom layout was altered to make way for a mix of 26 studio spaces, 13 workspaces, business incubation and exhibition space, and café over three floors. Externally, the building's key features were preserved including reuse of bricks for repairs while, internally, the original school sinks remain a feature throughout the building. Already fully let to local artists and people working in the creative industries on opening its doors, the facility expects to support over sixty jobs and generate wage earnings of just under £1m across the local economy. 

The project was developed through hub East Central Scotland, which brings together the expertise of public and private sector organisations to deliver better local services.
