Icon Building – Saltire Awards Information

This new thirteen storey property has been designed for Glasgow developer Strathallan. Typical for Elder & Cannon this building is sculptural and interesting. The side elevations sheath the thin slice of spaces facing south to the Clyde and are generally solidly clad. Currently the building sticks out a bit, but proposals by gm+ad, RMJM and Page Park will help provide a more contemporary and dense urban setting.

The Scottish Design Awards 2004 – the Icon Building was a Best Housing Project nominee

The architects practice responsible for this new design is local firm Elder & Cannon Architects
