Purcell mastermind office conversion of B-listed Parkhead School
October 26 2015
This work will transform the building into flexible office space and meeting rooms for local enterprises, returning window openings to their original configuration and creating a new glazed link entrance space in the process.
In their design statement Purcell remarked: “The new link building will be fully glazed at the street elevation and adopt a planar glass structure. The building will have a single ply roof and metal cladding to the rear elevation. The glass link is conceived to provide a lightweight connection between the existing building and allow wide views of the ashlar wall as a backdrop to the new space.”
Most internal finishes will be removed owing to the prevalence of dry rot with decorative cornices and mouldings retained where possible.
