RMJM converts Glasgow church remains into apartments - images

Work has started on this scheme by RMJM to convert the famous white tower - the only remaining part of the now-demolished Park Church in Glasgow - into luxury apartments.

The overhaul of the empty B-listed building in the West End of the city is the centrepiece of a larger £5 million development which will see the tower linked with a neighbouring 1960s office block.

The existing concrete office building will also be revamped and reclad in natural stone 'with accents of glass to reflect and complement the surrounding environment'.

Designed for Noah City Development, the scheme will create a total of 51 new homes.

RMJM director Alistair Brand said: 'Our team has developed an excellent design solution which has carefully taken into consideration the historic and architectural significance of the listed church tower and the surrounding conservation area.

'This is a fantastic opportunity to bring a city landmark back to life.'

The scheme, which has been designed by Arup Scotland, is expected to complete in September next year.
