 Students to colonise more redundant office space in Glasgow’s west end
Elder & Cannon Architects have submitted plans on behalf of Lysander Student Properties to convert a vacant office building at Clifton Place, Glasgow, into managed student accommodation.

Clifton House will be subdivided internally to form 142 single bed flats and 71 studio flats together with a new ground floor common room extending onto a formal landscape of timber decking, steps and seating laid over an existing concrete embankment connecting to Sauchiehall Street.

Internally a paved courtyard with inbuilt timber seating will be created with existing footpaths retained whilst roads and parking spaces give way to new street furniture and planting.

The £7m project is to be undertaken by Kier Construction.
Public access will be maintained through a new formal landscape

Lets all get on the 3D images bandwagon shall we!!
The cut out people look like students at least, thank goodness they have not colonised the space with carpets and dodgy drug dealing.

Is anyone else getting bored with the inane & over critical comments by users on UR?
All we need now is for someone to start banging on about the "Modernist Brigade" again.
Yawn

Hardly stimulating. We constantly big up architecture and how we have skills and expertise that is unique and essential to the construction industry, yet on public forums we are often an absolute embarrassment.

Childish. Have some people nothing intelligent to say?

In all probability, no.

And besides, it's a little bit of brevity to take your mind off your beautifully rendered/detailed baby having the arse ripped out of it by some D&B contractor.
