Waterloo Street Car Park

Design: MCM Architects

The refurbishment of Waterloo Street Car Park in central Glasgow provides the opportunity to enrich the existing urban grain of the city and to reinforce the presence of an established corner site property.

Q-Park’s philosophy of robust, legible, secure and of a user friendly environment has been implemented to provide an attractive and inviting facility – safe and easy to use and understand.

The external fabric of the building is designed to complement and reinforce the overall identity of the local area as a mix of exciting bold statements and landmarks. Clad in 12km of Siberian Larch louvred cladding the fabric facilitates a naturally ventilated environment and provides a secure transparency changing from night and day through the interior lighting. The warmth and natural feeling of the cladding is contrasted dramatically with the steel panel clad “helix” which is clearly identified as it’s separate use as vertical circulation.

Overall the building responds to context in a bold and visually exciting manner and betrays its functional use a safe, secure and efficient city centre car park.
