WASPS South Block

NORD Architecture

For the best part of 20 years, the city block at King Street (now South Block) was occupied on an ad hoc, short-term basis by charities and was largely under used. The new development provides 96 flexible studios offering workspace environments for independent artists, visual & applied arts, cultural social enterprises and creative businesses. One of the key priorities for WASPS was to create a building which facilitated interaction between artists and creative industry professionals.

The project contributes to Glasgow City Council’s regeneration policy to consolidate and enhance the Merchant City’s reputation as a leading cultural quarter in the UK.
