Café plan approved for disused Kelvingrove toilets
January 23 2015Glasgow City Council's seal of approval.
Masterminded by Cameron Webster Architects of BeanYet the plan would overhaul the disused public convenience on Eldon Street, next to Kelvingrove Park, whilst introducing a new roof terrace and free mobility scooter hire service.
Welcoming the proposals Audrey Gardner, chair of the Strathclyde group of the Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland welcomed the proposals, but called for a window in the main façade to be reconsidered.
Gardner wrote: “Considering the location and area where this building is placed, it is important to keep the vertical rhythm in the existing construction. That is why we suggest studying the possibility of adding some elements that could help to respect these proportions in the main opening without altering the objective of the project.”
Delivery is penciled in for the summer.
