WIP - More Evening folio work. Making the Plan Presentable. Still to add in Context that has been so important to the design development. The Ground Floor entry is on the corner, under the tower and the threshold is pulled back into the building giving back space to the city and bringing Glasgow into the building. There is an entrance hall and reception and a café/bar in the south of the building that absorbs light and makes a welcoming entrance. From there, you pass through the wall and there is the new public assembly hall that sits adjacent to Woodlands Road that is shaped by the stair tower and civic stair to the study mezzanine. The lower library sits at the back of the plan, behind which is the unseen void down to the cloakroom. In the centre of the plan is the courtyard that dives down to the basement and the windows to the rear courtyard assure there is north light deep in the depth of the plan and section meaning that the circulation becomes pivotal to the life of the building. The promenade architectural aims to create experiences of the building, Celtic culture and the city and moves orientation in and out of solid and void, using the mass of the wall and the change in elevation to form spatial interest and hierarchy. The central void connects the whole building together and makes a new civic space for art and culture. The whole scheme talks to the idea of inhabited wall and revealed space, referencing the spatial qualities of the Scottish towerhouse and the Broch and promoting the Celtic culture through the architecture as well as the beautiful paintings of Vilhelm Hammershøi, that portray rooms and the unseen space ahead, capturing moments of life.
