Mosaic Architecture + Design, one of Scotland’s most experienced practices, has completed the £750,000 conversion of the iconic Grade A office building at 23 Nelson Mandela Place in the heart of Glasgow city centre into 10 upmarket serviced apartments for Destiny Scotland.
While the exterior of the period sandstone building with an ornate-façade has been retained, the interior has undergone extensive conversion and refurbishment to create a range of luxury modern apartments.
Stephen Mallon, Director of Mosaic, said,
“The refurbishment and conversion of this listed property was complicated due to the change of use and subsequent requirements of the building regulations. We ended up with a robust fire safety plan including sprinklers and automated smoke ventilation to navigate through the regulations. The design is crisp, robust and attractive making, best use of the existing features of the property.”
Stuart Moffat, Joint Managing Director of Destiny Scotland, added,
“It has been a pleasure working with Mosaic on the Nelson Mandela Place project to bring an iconic building back to life – their professionalism and advice throughout the planning process was invaluable and I look forward to using their services again in future developments.”
Destiny Scotland manages a portfolio of unique conversion buildings across Edinburgh and Glasgow where guests experience living in contemporary yet traditional surroundings.
The new serviced apartments are now open to the public.
