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 proposal incorporates a new headquarters building for Barclays Bank. The overall development incorporates three entire city blocks that overlook the City's iconic River Clyde.
The project creates a new urban morphology with a key focus on people 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 are 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 locations historic warehouse architecture. Designs eschews a generic office approach to embrace a place led townscape strategy. Opposite a photograph of the project currently under construction.
