Painted as part of the Homes for the Future series.
The project was part of a competition run by Glasgow 1999 Year of Architecture and Design. Situated within a neglected part of Glasgow’s East End. The development consisted of a mixture of loft apartments, flats and commercial units. Adjacent to Glasgow Green, the building is orientated to maximise this vista over the city. To the rear of the building and landscape are directly connected with a pergola structure. This cascades from 5 storeys to form an integral part of the communal garden. Glasgow launched a design competition encouraging developers to submit plans that reflected future living and future technology.
