Woodside House


High quality student living in Glasgow Conservation Area.

The accommodation delivers 91 no. studios on the site of a former public house site in west side of Glasgow Conservation Area, on the bank of the River Kelvin. It was an extremely tight site with extensive constraints including poor ground conditions.

Hackland + Dore Architects were appointed on a Design and Build contract and were able to address design and delivery with multi phased building warrants and a number of planning variations. Hackland + Dore achieved very tight programme deadlines to enable timeous student occupation.
