The Sanctuary of Conviviality (SOC) is a cultural building designed with the intent to connect the public to food, the arts, and horticultural education through typologically sacred architecture. The SOC is a communal haven for the Glaswegian community, a place where people come together to eat, learn and celebrate local and international artists.

Space for exhibitions, vegetable growing, and communal cooking coexist to form a living building where stories are shared and made.

Ornament and form infuenced by monastic architecture are expressed through an interplay of masonry and timber. The design and atmosphere of sacred spaces are intended to evoke a sense of tranquillity and transcendence in the inhabitant. The architecture of the SOC aims to foster a deeper sense of personal connection and meaning between its inhabitants and the world around them.
