The A-listed Anchor Line Building on Glasgow’s St Vincent Place has been repurposed to form an apart-hotel consisting of 64 bedrooms and associated facilities.
The vacant upper floors, the condition of which placed the structure on the Buildings at Risk Register, have been refurbished from the first level upwards and includes a single storey set back rooftop extension.
In securing listed building consent, many of the original features including a white Doulton Carrara ware façade; marble and timber panelling, cornice work, glazed wall tiling and terrazzo floors have been retained.
The building services design carefully sought to enhance the aesthetics of the building and are cleverly integrated into the fabric. Due to the city centre environment, the systems design include comfort cooling and mechanical ventilation with LED lighting throughout.
