Custom House hotel plans submitted
April 12 2012
Adopting a “respectful approach” to the A listed façade of the former Custom house on Clyde Street, at the southern extremity of the Buchanan Street axis, the development will entail demolition of rear outbuildings to erect an elongated new build stretching to a gap site on Dixon Street.
A central staircase within the Custom House, currently on the Buildings at Risk Register, will be restored with ancillary spaces given over to street facing bars and a restaurant extending to the courtyard behind which will be given a glazed roof.
The concept design inlays a geometric pattern inspired by the lattice structure of the Central Station bridge extrapolated to the scale of the destroyed St Enoch Station Hotel.
This mass is designed to screen the secondary façade of a proposed Hyatt hotel whilst a, slight, height increase on Dixon Street is intended to terminate the Buchanan Street axis. Double Tree by Hilton have been signed up by the client to tenant the scheme.
