Fresh details published for speculative 85,000sq/ft Glasgow office block
December 9 2015speculative office redevelopment in central Glasgow planned by Patrizia and their architects Keppie Design.
This will see the existing Douglas House replaced with 85,000sq/ft of grade A office space in a 15 storey block finished in dark grey and white precast concrete, anodised aluminium and clear glass.
Featuring a colonnade along Waterloo Street the scheme will include new paving to the west as well as a setback entrance.
In their design statement Keppie observed: “The building mass is separated into three distinct elements by emphasising the datum at key heights. The base relates to the human scale at ground level and helps the building to negotiate the steep topography of Douglas Street. The middle section represents the bulk of the office floors and identifies the commercial nature of the building in mid-range views. The top relates to the heights of neighbouring buildings and helps to reduce the massing at the upper floors.”
