Approval won for Anniesland office to residential conversion
June 21 2016Herschell Street, Anniesland, to form 48 apartments.
This will see the existing structure reclad in brick and bronze together with the addition of rooftop penthouses formed from ‘folded’ golden metal and addition of a new build close.
New lobbies taking the form of a simple cube of metal and glass, taking their cue from the roof, will be inserted on the front elevation to enhance security with balconies used to the rear with a new skin of weathered brick replacing concrete panels.
In their design statement the architects said: “The first four storeys, part of the existing structure, are wrapped in the brick skin. This is the development’s ‘solid’ base. The top storey has been designed to resemble a continuous ‘folded’ metal panel which forms the east elevation; folds into the roof and then folds down the west elevation to form the walls at the top of each stairwell.”
21 Herschell Street was purchased by Mactaggart & Mickel in 2011 for £2.1m in what was the house builders first major commercial property acquisition.
