Overview

Nearly 30 years and 15 projects later, we are going to share the stories behind the buildings we’ve delivered since 1993 in this fascinating part of our city.

Starting in Glasgow Green, our tour will explore the projects that we’ve delivered following the clearance of the iconic Gorbals high-rise tower blocks.

On our tour we will journey past some of the key cultural & civic spaces and will explore the varied housing. The tour will culminate at the recently completed former Linen Bank building at 166 Gorbals Street.

We enjoy the challenge of embedding stories in our architecture, so that they can be told and re-told in years to come, we look forward to sharing some of these with you.
