GM+AD'S 'MEMORY VEIL'

  • Comment
NEWS IN PICTURES

gm+ad has submitted this £40 million project in Glasgow city centre for planning. The Paramount Building is a mixed-use scheme for developer Duddingston House Properties and will be formed around the existing, but now defunct, 1930s Art Deco Odeon Cinema on the city's West Regent Street. gm+ad partner Gordon Murray said the building, which will include commercial and retail space, has a four-storey glass 'memory veil' that will replace the rear of the existing eight-storey cinema - the facade of which is to be retained. Murray said: 'We will demolish the existing brick box to the rear of the Art Deco building and recall the memory of it with an independent glass facade supported by diagonal tubular steels.' Murray said the scheme had received a 'favourable' reception at a Glasgow City Council review panel and added that planning was expected to be granted this autumn.
