Moda Holland Park harnesses art to come out on top

Moda Living and Robertson Construction have conducted a topping out ceremony at Holland Park, an emerging build to rent block in Glasgow city centre.

The occasion was marked by the commission of an evocative painting of the development by local artist Ida Henrich, part of efforts to celebrate the artistic heritage of a neighbourhood defined by the Glasgow School of Art.

This approach is embodied by cementing an artists’ paintbrush into the top floor, literally enshrining art within the built fabric of a development which stresses community living through inclusion of a 24 hour gym; private dining rooms, a cinema, games rooms and roof terraces complete with green space and BBQ areas.

Rising on the site of the former Strathclyde Police HQ Holland Park will offer 433 apartments when complete in a series of buildings rising up to 22 storeys, with ground floor commercial units helping to knit the building into the streetscape.

Designed by Haus Collective Moda, Holland Park, should open in 2023.

The artist had fun doing that. Hard to miss the big bag of money sitting next to the panting dog. The weight: on your shoulders and the padlock: locking you in. In return you will get some popcorn and access to an xbox?

MODA seems to have judged Glasgow's capacity for modern buildings just right and have settled on 'mundane' as a theme for their new development.

If you take all the coloured elements out of this image you will have a good idea of what the finished product will be like.
