Glasgow student build reaches practical completion
August 16 2017441 student flats at North Hanover Street, Glasgow.
Incorporating 4,000sq/ft of retail space the Manson Architects designed scheme is finished in facing brick work above a triple height portico finished in pre-cast panels.
The V-shaped block addresses Dobbie’s Loan with a slender tower element before stepping down in height along North Hanover Street, broken by a fully glazed stairwell.
At the building’s base a landscaped courtyard to serve as a breathing space and gathering point for tenants.
Sitting midway between Glasgow Caledonian University and City of Glasgow College the island site aims to be the first element of a broader strategy to reimagine tall buildings in the Townhead area to improve skyline views.
