The new build 900 sq m restaurant is located at a focal point in the River Clyde Media Quarter Masterplan immediately adjacent to the I-max cinema , Glasgow Science Centre and BBC Scotland headquarters .The building is conceived as a simple elegant pavilion poised in the new landscape of the riverside walkway

A restrained elevational approach presents an anodised aluminium colonnade to the west over looking the Canting Basin and the Sea Plane jetty and to the east the elevation is composed of large format cast stone panels and urban scaled windows presenting a strong monolithic appearance which contrasts with the metallic and glass neighbours and affords a clear identity for the building in context.
