220 Broomielaw, Glasgow

The proposed commercial development at 220 Broomielaw, Glasgow is situated at the western edge of the Financial Services District, fronting onto the River Clyde.

Intended as a continuation of the sequence of office pavilions along the riverfront its eleven storey massing mediates with the potential increased scale of future phases and planed development towards the Kingston Bridge.

The plan wraps around a central circulation and services core providing clear floor plate office accommodation with continual natural daylight to the perimeter.

The fully glazed sawtooth elevation onto the riverfront maintains the orthogonal floorplate and with it’s staggered two storey module enlivens the façade while the expressed frame provides a civic scale and depth to the composition.
