Collective’s kiosks set for Glasgow streets

  • Comment

[FIRST LOOK + PLANS] Collective Architecture has won planning permission for four ‘lightweight, modular’ kiosks in the pedestrianised area of Argyle Street, Glasgow

The largest of the structures is a café building with a second-storey gallery and terrace level. According to the Glasgow-based practice the ‘elevations are predominantly glazed to ensure structures appear translucent and to maintain views across the street’.

A spokesman said: ‘The design concept responds to Argyle Streets importance as an East - West route through the city  with the introduction of linear double height structures located along the central reservation of the street.

‘Window and column proportions which are evident across the facade of Alexander Greek Thomson’s Bucks Head building have been applied to generate the proportions of the structural modules which form the cafe and kiosks.

Bronze louvred panels will provide a ‘protective secondary skin’.

Commissioned by Glasgow City Council’s Development and Regeneration Services, the £500,000 scheme has been developed with artist Martin Boyce and engineers David Narro Associates.
