ICA secure planning for Anchor Line hotel
March 9 2017A-listed Anchor Line building on St Vincent Place, Glasgow, to form a 64-bed aparthotel.
The Di Maggio restaurant group are leading the refurbishment of the upper floors including a single storey recessed rooftop extension intended to marry with the classical symmetry and materiality of the building below.
In a statement ICA wrote: “The roof extension has been proposed in a modern language of metal and glass, in order to maximise views out over the city and contrast with white faience cladding of the main elevation.
“The concept of ‘traveller’ and ‘destination’ bring the interior of the building together to create a luxurious environment. Internally, many original features remain, such as glazed tiles, terrazzo flooring, timber wall paneling and fireplaces. These have been incorporated into the design, both acknowledging the architectural quality of the existing building, and adding a sense of the building’s history to the newly refurbished accommodation.”
The Anchor Line Building was built in 1907 by James Millar as the head office for the eponymous shipping company.
