Glasgow's Queen Street cements status as prime office address
Glasgow’s Queen Street is asserting itself as a prime office address with an application by CDA Architects to refurbish 100 Queen Street by replacing and extending an obsolete1980s rooftop extension and adding an additional floor.

This will be dressed with bronze coloured metal fins, extrapolating their stone counterparts from the body of the 1950s built offices below to work with the rhythm of the façade and offering an external terrace with views across Royal Exchange Square.

The principal entrance on the corner with Ingram Street will also be upgraded by dropping the ground floor slab to create level access, allowing the original building line to be reinstated.

In their design statement CDA said: “The roofline is purposefully crisp, with the vertical fins breaking the parapet, mirroring the crenalated stone parapet below.

“The end bays on both Queen Street and Ingram Street are a more solid metal cladding, matching the ‘book end’ effect of the existing buildings below.”
