ARPL Architects appointed for West Boathouse Glasgow Green
ARPL have been selected as architects for the restoration of West Boathouse in Glasgow Green following a detailed tender process and interview carried out by the Glasgow Building Preservation Trust.
This unique listed building, one of the grandest of its kind, is a fully timber framed structure dating from 1905 designed by the Glasgow City surveyor Alexander B MacDonald. The project aims to restore the boathouse, currently in poor condition, to create a modern, accessible boathouse to serve Glasgow Green and wider community groups.
Our design is both innovative and sympathetic to the immediate and the broader environment in which they are constructed with an emphasis on sustainability. Each project embraces the unique nature of the client’s needs and the site.
From our base in Ayr the practice carries out projects over a wide geographical area from the Orkneys and the Western Isles to Ireland. Our project experience covers the fields of housing, churches, schools, commercial projects, private houses, community and arts buildings. We have developed particular expertise in contemporary sustainable design, specialist conservation works and design for historically sensitive environments.
Our work has received wide recognition through numerous design and environmental awards presented over the years for our new build and conservation works. Regular success in design competitions adds to the practice portfolio.
