Mosaic lead Blythswood office to hotel conversion

Mosaic Architecture acting on behalf of Carrigmay have drawn up plans to convert a former office block at 249 West George Street, Glasgow, to form a 100-bed hotel.

To accommodate the Adina 4* aparthotel existing stone cladding will be removed and replaced with new sandstone rainscreen panels, together with the addition of a sixth-floor extension finished in cement fibre panels and a private external courtyard terrace.

In their design statement Mosaic remarked: “The bedroom accommodation fills the existing U shaped plan which reinforces the existing street pattern and continues over the same footprint at the new upper level.

“New Sandstone rainscreen panels have been selected as the primary material to replace the existing panels to provide a high-quality finish. The new sixth floor has curtain walling to the north and south elevations and cement fibre panels provide a contrasting panel to the south and east.”

As part of the work parking spaces will be reduced from 17 to four.
