Restoration of St Peter's Cardross abandoned

St Peter's Cardross in dereliction

Avanti project falls victim to funding cuts as charity closes

Avanti’s ambitious refurbishment of St Peter’s Seminary in Cardross, Scotland, has been abandoned after seven years.

NVA, the arts charity leading the project to restore the modernist icon, also announced it was shutting down after Creative Scotland rejected an application for core funding in January.

St Peter’s is regarded as one of the UK’s most important modernist buildings and is one of only 42 post-war Scottish buildings to be given Category A protection.
