Silverburn extension completes
Graham Construction has completed work on a £20m extension of the Silverburn Centre, Pollok, a 120,000sq/ft block incorporating a cinema, restaurants and expanded retail.

Designed by BDP the western extension has been funded by Hammerson to improve the centre’s leisure offer.

This is arranged around a central winter garden with a façade of ‘fractured planes’ presenting themselves along the primary M77 elevation.
A new bingo hall is incorporated to replace facilities lost from the old Pollok Centre

I'm not saying it's brilliant, but it's significantly better than the Fort or Breahead

As Shopping Malls go (in Scotland) it's probably one of the best

Yet nothing done to improve the surrounding road networks, it cant cope as it is...

BDP never fail to underwhelm. Nor do they look far for their inspiration. Better than the Fort you say? Whaow! It's more Barrowlands than Braehead! The Boring Design Partnership!

'The western extension is centred on a winter garden'. What do you mean A winter garden? This is a straight crib of Pringle Richards Sharratt's Sheffield Winter garden. If I were them i'd consider suing BDP!

I visited Silverburn recently and enjoyed the experience. Night and day from Braehead. Why anyone would bypass here to go to Braehead is beyond me. Tried Braehead twice and left feeling cold and uninspired . Kind of housing scheme shopping centre feel. Silverburn on the other hand was a good shopping experience.
