3DReid have submitted a planning application for the renovation and extension of John Smith House, 145-165 West Regent Street, Glasgow.

Unite Union, owners of the property, wish to undertake a series of works that include cleaning the limestone façade, replacing some black granite cladding, installing new glazing and (most notably) the addition of a single storey extension.

This glazed penthouse floor has been designed as a play on the horizontal and vertical glass box with a random vertical language that contrasts with the strong horizontal lines of the existing build.

By night this contrast will be further enhanced by illumination, transforming the rooftop space into a glowing lantern atop Blythswood Hill.

Costed at some £2.5m the works will expand total lettable floorspace to 3,465sq/m.
