The client’s brief required a sustainable solution to workshop units that would also provide a distinctive contribution to the approach into Clydebank. The design is dominated by gold and black feature roof lights above a simple and affordable metal clad base, with the form drawing on the principles of the sawtooth roof forms of modernist industrial developments.
The striking black steel cladding has an unusually-deep profile that gives the elevation relief and shadow. This is contrasted by tall, set-back, shutter and pass door arrangements to each unit that together generate a colonnade frontage to the building that delivers a refined image.
