Hotel in the Merchant City
Tall thin city block with dynamic roof expressed as curve over a Z-step – this device allows a step in parapet heights between neighbours, and creates a dynamic elevation for this boutique hotel. One of the early buildings by Elder & Cannon that made their name.
According to the architect this hotel “responds to the varied character of Brunswick Street as a contemporary infill with a strong identity which engages the existing buildings to complete a rich streetscape. A simple elevational break up begins a dialogue with the immediate context and clearly expresses the buildings function while an efficient central plan layout maximised the available footprint for hotel accommodation to both the street and the courtyard.”
Awards: GIA Award
Other projects by this Glaswegian architecture practice include the Icon Building down on the River Clyde, work at Homes for the Future off Glasgow Green and buildings at St Aloysius College north west of the city centre next to the School of Art building.
