Clyde Street Studios
This prominent riverside site in Glasgow previously had Planning Consent for a 17-storey hotel proposal, but owing to the financial downturn of 2008/09 this was never executed.
Our client acquired the site, and to meet the growing demand for student accommodation in the city, developed proposals to convert the use while working with the previously consented massing and materiality.
With Planning Consent secured, Threesixty were appointed as delivery architects to take this complex project through the technical design process and on to site.
The focus of the revised design is to deliver 290 individual studios arranged over the upper 16 floors that step back as the building increases in height, and a number of shared amenities at ground floor level that provide active frontages to the entire Clyde Street elevation.
The building has subsequently been converted into a hotel, recently opening under the Virgin Hotels brand.
