Situated in the heart of the vibrant Merchant City district, the site constitutes one of the most prominent gap sites in Glasgow City centre. The proposed development incorporates new basement car parking, ground floor workshops, 48 no. sheltered housing units & 10 no. penthouse maisonettes. In addition to the newbuild elements & roof extension to 51 Wilson Street, the proposals also retain & refurbish 51 Brunswick Street, for the purposes of retail & office space.
The interplay between solid & void on the elevational treatment has been carefully designed to be thoroughly contemporary, whilst still giving a strong hint to the 'art deco' style & scale of the neighbouring properties.
