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
