Stallan-Brand are leading on the design of a major new urban quarter on Glasgow's South Bank in the Tradeston area of the city. The project incorporates new offices, sizeable build-to-rent residential, community enterprise space, and active ground floor uses.
The proposal also incorporates a new headquarters building for Barclays Bank. Notably, three entire city blocks that overlook Glasgow's iconic River Clyde are being transformed.
The project creates a new urban morphology with a key focus on people's movement, accessibility, and improved connectivity. The four-lane highway that previously separated the buildings and the river has been removed to create a new linear park.
Facade studies propose to celebrate and incorporate the sites existing buildings.
The development incorporates residential and an inspired early years crèche design as well as workspace.
Central to the success of the Clyde Place environment is the design of an ambitious public realm and landscape strategy which again the practice is leading on.
As part of our design code, we prepared detailed facade studies to respond to aspect, orientation, scale, and the different environments and character zones that the architecture would address.
Our urban design proposals are informed by the location's historic warehouse architecture. Designs eschew a generic office approach to embrace a place-led townscape strategy.
