Clyde Gateway bring breath of fresh air to Dalmarnock
January 7 2020
Clyde Gateway together with Sheppard Robson and Inch Architecture & Design have presente4d proposals to transform a disused gas works in Dalmarnock, Glasgow, into office accommodation.
The regeneration plan seeks to safeguard the Victorian industrial survivor by repurposing an unlisted gas purifier shed and meter house to deliver 3,746sq/m of new floorspace.
Occupying a central position in the South Dalmarnock Masterplan Purifier Studios is one of just five historic buildings remaining in the area, elevating its importance in efforts to revitalise Dalmarnock Cross.
Repair works have already been carried out to the structure, clearing the way for division of the space to form six individual units, each with a mezzanine level to maximise floorspace.
Outining their design approach Clyde Gateway wrote: “The existing roof structure and columns are exposed and celebrated. The new steel structure required to support the mezzanine facilitates large spans for open flexible floor space and expanses of curtain wall glazing.
“The new mezzanine columns are exposed and form part of the industrial aesthetic.”
The main frontage will take the form of a glazed façade positioned behind existing columns with individual entrances defined by a mix of solid and mesh panels.
