Plans go in for University of Glasgow teaching hub
June 23 2016filed plans drawn up by HLM Architects and WSP Parsons Binckerhoff for a Learning & Teaching Hub on its Gilmorehill campus.
Faced in large format buff concrete panels and bronze coloured metal panels the hub entrance will be expressed by a signature cantilever with an area of feature glazing providing a direct link to the refurbished Boyd Orr Building.
In a design statement the architects wrote: “We believe that the application proposals achieve a successful response to an area of informal car parking and mathematics buildings that together have a detrimental impact on the visual appearance of what id an important site within the Glasgow West Conservation Area.
“We believe that the development is sensitive to its surroundings achieving a sense of place and delivers the quality of facility required by the University to meet its learning and teaching needs.
Key features of the build include a 500 seat auditorium, café and roof terrace in addition to classrooms.
