Aparthotel signals Glasgow lane infill
November 23 2016nine storey aparthotel and street level coffee shop on vacant ground at the junction of Sauchiehall Lane and Blythswood Street, Glasgow.
Offering 22 self-catering apartments to business and leisure guests the building will enclose a city block within the central conservation area.
A design statement prepared by the architects read: “The proposed elevation retains the uniform stone plane of the façade. The parapet line is modulated expressing the individual plot. The height of the main façade and recessed roof structure matches that of the two previous Consents below by the Riach Partnership and a further scheme developed by G D Lodge Architects in 2015.”
The front facing elevation will be faced in natural stone and brick to the rear with the top two zinc-clad floors set back behind a heavy cornice. Work to repair natural granite cobbles to Sauchiehall Lane will also take place.
