Glasgow firm reveals plans for new HQ

Thomson Hunter Architects and Sweeney Kincaid have filed plans for a new office pavilion at Carnegie Road, Glasgow, together with 51 parking spaces.

Open plan office space, a customer counter and video wall will be located at ground floor level with a conference room and breakout space situated on the first floor.

Set within an area of landscaping and semi-private breakout space the scheme will provide a modern environment for staff and clients.

Situated across from Hillington East station the building wills serve as a headquarters for the industrial auctioneering firm specialising in the sale of plant and machinery.

Full height glazing is included throughout

51 car parking spaces for 6 desks, that is impressive and sustainable. 2 minutes from a station as well.

They probably should have finished the rendering before issuing....

It's so appalling that I have to laugh but internally I am sobbing. Architecture in Scotland needs a talking to. The state of things is troubling.

Sweeney Kincaid is an auctioneer so I can only assume the huge number of parking spaces is to accommodate visitors or to hold pre-sale stock?

If they do introduce a non-residential parking tax then Sweeney Kincaid will be funding an expansion of the subway/new tram system on their own with all those spaces
