Stallan-Brand ink Glasgow office makeover
Stallan-Brand Architects have brought forward makeover proposals for Hanover House on the junction of Cadogan Street and Douglas Street, Glasgow, to improve the block’s relationship with the junction.

Rebranded as the Ink Building it will see replacement full-height glazing specified at ground and first floor levels together with improvements to stair lobbies and a new double height entrance space, as well as a rationalized street edge formed from black ceramic granite.

In a statement the practice wrote: “The corner location provides a great opportunity to improve the way the building addresses the street, making it feel more open and welcoming which will also help to promote the office development.”

Otherwise the structure will remain in a largely unaltered state save for refurbishment where necessary and the installation of new feature lighting within recesses within linear brick ‘fins’.

Pity. A missed oppurtunity to demolish another eyesore. A sticking plaster won't improve this horror.

Why don't they just leave it like it is....oh wait they have sorry.

The best looking building in this picture is the red sandstone building at the very end. The rest are all dated and an embarrassment to their tenants. The people approving these developments must have a hatred of Glasgow. New blood required I think and put the old guard out to graze. Like the buildings ... they are past their best by date.

Agree with Billy, ultimately should just bring it down and start again but in mean time fill the bigger gap sites elsewhere first.
