citizenM comes to Glasgow
Citizen M's 3rd hotel opens in Glasgow in 2009, employing a distinctive concept from award winning Dutch design firm Concrete Architectural Associates.  Design employs full height multi angled windows set in dark granite and a dynamic adornment of artwork at the Cowcaddens Rd intersection.

A modular building method allows rooms to be completely prefabricated at citizenM's own production facility prior to transportation on site where assembly is carried out over an 8-10 month build period.  The Industrial, Flexible, Demountable (IFD) building method allows for a consistent quality of manufacture to be achieved.

The hotel ranks as Broadway’s strongest design element, despite lacking some streetscape muscle.  Ideally it would have broken the adjacent office datum to augment its superior design.

I am looking forward to this new exciting Hotel opening in Glasgow City Centre. The whole concept of the rooms being placed in as a whole is quite intriguing.
