ABC 2 Student Residential
Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow
A Glasgow nightclub is to make way for the city’s latest student residential build, following submission of plans by Haus Architects on behalf of GRS, owners of ABC 1 and 2. 185 studio flats will be housed in a single building extending from three to eight storeys as it rises from Sauchiehall Street up Dalhousie Street, with ground floor retail provision stretching along the former and a central lightwell drawing daylight to the interior. The scheme also adopts a structural solution allowing for apartments to be combined post construction to allow the applicant maximum flexibility in configuring layouts. Butler Consulting worked extensively with the clients and the design team in the development of the Building Services and Sustainability strategy for the redevelopment.
