Glasgow Collective Studios

Barrowlands, Glasgow

Creative workshops and events space within Barras area for new studio provider Glasgow Collective. Our brief was to take an historic industrial space on East Campbell Street and create a flexible working environment capable of providing individual studios, coworking space as well as a large events space.

The space, while now including some sub-division, still revolves round the open- plan floorplate. The existing columns are use to create different subdivisions within the space as required. This can be reinforced with flexible partitions.

The central events space has a direct relationship with the rental spaces. Each of the tenants (events companies and artisan food/drink suppliers) is able to commandeer the space for a range of different purposes.

A catering kitchen supports the central events space meaning the ability to accommodate events as diverse as Restless Natives, streetfood festivals, gigs as well as the Archifringe launch.

The space isn’t designed to be precious and is robust enough to withstand a number of events and uses.
