First look at gm + ad's last building
The last building designed by gm+ad before its split in 2010, the 6,000m2 Copenhagen Building in Glasgow, has finally completed
Now called Sixty 7 Hope Street, the office scheme was left half-built for 18 months after Chard Construction went into administration two years ago.
Work restarted on the project, which included the refurbishment of a neighbouring grade B-listed building designed by Robert Thomson (1899), when new owners Allied Irish Bank stepped in and handed the task of completing the scheme to Clark Contracts in 2011.
The glass-fronted office sits next to the grade A-listed Atlantic Chambers designed by JJ Burnett.
Alan Dunlop, the co-founder of gm+ad with Gordon Murray, said :’The challenge was to create a highly contemporary office building to sit between two important listed structures.’
