Edinburgh-based 7N Architects has revealed their masterplan for Shawfield in Glasgow, a development containing 1.2 million square feet of "flexible business space" next to the River Clyde. Produced for the Clyde Gateway Urban Regeneration Company, the scheme aims to capitalize on the growth and investment that was brought to Glasgow by this summer's Commonwealth Games by providing "a nationally significant business district which will play a strong role in contributing to growth in Scotland's economy."
The Shawfield masterplan represents "a high quality business environment which encapsulates Clyde Gateway’s design led approach to placemaking as the principle stimulus to cultivating quality development and transformational change," say the architects. "Development plots are set within a framework of public realm that is urban in character and green landscape that weaves it into its lush riverside setting."
Alongside 7N Architects, the team behind the masterplan was led by construction company Mace Group, and included Arup, Ironside Farrar and Sheppard Robson.
