Glasgow’s industrial history is written in the grandeur of its Victorian buildings, fashioned from ornate sandstone, with decorative iron and steel.
Its robust and exuberant late 19th Century architecture became the inspiration for many iconic early 20th Century buildings in New York and Chicago – we want to bring this spirit back to The Still.
Distillers House was built in 1890 for Wright & Greig, whisky bottlers and blenders as their HQ and blending warehouse. Characters from Walter Scott’s ‘Lady of the Lake’ adorn the rich red stonework – such as Roderick Dhu, which Wright & Greig named their popular blend.
Designed by Bennetts Associates, The Still will regenerate and enhance this key city block on the edge of Glasgow’s Central Conservation Area – preserving, enhancing and incorporating the Distillers House façade.
The Planning and Listed Building Application has been submitted. Whiteburn are seeking a development or financial partner to work with us to deliver this game changer.
A steel framed gridded curtain wall structure will soar 14 storeys, providing 100,000 sqft of open plan Grade A space – where innovative new ways of working will harness all the elements of today’s rapidly changing technological and cultural environment.
The Still won’t have the usual suspended ceilings, instead services will be on view – making full use of the additional height to give as sense of light and airiness and offering stunning city views.
On the ground we’ll have an open format café/restaurant and inclusive informal business meeting area, with free internet access – Still Life.
Stacked car parking in the basement, but also bicycle storage, shower-rooms, lockers and a gym – to meet the demands of today’s energetic workforce.
There will be a real sense of creative urban energy at The Still – we think it will become the only building any professional, creative, ambitious, cutting edge firm would want to flourish in. If that’s you? Come and talk to us.Talk to us
