Glasgow’s newest student flats in tune with the neighbours
October 16 2019
Mosaic Architecture + Design has unveiled Glasgow’s newest purpose-built student residences following completion of a 301-bed block sandwiched between the B-listed Piping Centre and A-listed Scottish Ambulance building in Cowcaddens.
Led by Soller Real Estate Base Glasgow has been developed for the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland and takes the form of a stone-clad rectangular block on Dunblane Street offering a mix of studio apartments, cluster flats and accessible dwellings arranged around a U-shaped plan.
Neil Haining, Director of Mosaic, said: “The development has been carefully designed in response to the site’s immediate context and the surrounding townscape in this part of the city and provides a new urban block with appropriate scale and quality of materials.
“The ground floor forms the primary access level with the primary entrance off McPhater Street. This level also supports a large percentage of the student amenity space which is focused around the entrance onto the public square. The amenity space also breaks out into the upper courtyard to ensure this external space is used as part of the everyday life of the building.”
Designed to reinforce the streetscape the accommodation is supported by a range of amenity spaces including soundproof practice rooms, a gym and cinema. Residents will also have access to a private landscaped courtyard.
