‘Living machine’ tabled for Glasgow waterfront
September 18 2018
A planning application has been drawn up by new practice Carson+Sall with the aim of erecting 144 apartments at a longstanding gap site on Hydepark Street, Glasgow, next to the Central Quay masterplan.
Rising to 18 storeys the proposed scheme rises above a double-height plinth containing parking to a varied skyline with fully glazed bays broken by solid columns and would employ off-site manufacturing methods to speed construction.
Describing the proposed appearance of the development the architects wrote: “The development includes west facing shared private amenity space located above the car park and private individual terraces to flats adjacent to this and on the roofs of each step back.
“The overall development in essence is an optimistic ‘living machine’ celebrating Glasgow’s architecture, design, urban planning and engineering located near its birth place on the banks of the River Clyde.”
It is proposed to clad the build in Jura limestone panels or similar with powder coated aluminium wall panels and glazing.
