Download: BBC Pacific Quay Case Study

Project Name: BBC Pacific Quay

Building Type: Commercial

Location: Pacific Quay, glasgow

Architect: David Chipperfield Architects, Graven Images

Project: A defining feature is of this project the internal, stepped red sandstone ‘street’ that rises throughout the entire length of the building, providing break-out spaces and informal meeting areas, as well as offering visitors a dramatic view of BBC Scotland at work. Red sandstone was selected as the principal material for the most dramatic feature in the building – the central staircase or ‘street’. It sits alongside steel, glass and concrete

finishes giving a reflective nod to Glasgow tenements and the shipbuilding heritage of the Prince’s Dock site on which the building stands.

Materials Featured: Locharbriggs Sanstone, Lazonby Sandstone
