New hotel in store for Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street
August 30 2019
Mosaic Architecture + Design have filed detailed plans for the conversion of a department store on Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street dating from 1929 to form a 112-bedroom budget hotel and restaurant.
The £12m Qtel branded hotel has been conceived by Manor Property Group as a means to revitalise the Art Deco landmark while adding a rooftop extension to provide additional bedrooms and converting the basement to form a private gym and meeting rooms.
Mosaic director Stephen Mallon said: “The design is one we feel is respectful of the existing building and context, using a traditional mansard form re-interpreted in a modern fashion with new materiality. While researching the existing property, we discovered that the now-demolished building that sat on the site previously was Glasgow’s very own ‘Balmoral Hotel’; something of which I was unaware of before our involvement, but which seems to provide a neat symmetry for this project.”
Mosaic is currently on-site with the delivery of a new Yotel on Argyle Street.
