Munro Apartments

Cost: 2,400,000

This project required the convertion and extension of the Grade B Listed welfare facilities building at the former Knightswood Bus Garage into affordable residential apartments and office space.

A new storey of windows was inserted seamlessly into the long elevations, thereby sub dividing the high section of the existing building into 3 storeys. 2 storeys were added on top of the single storey part of the existing building toward the southern edge, maximising density.

The new 4 storey building was extended out from the southern gable and was scaled to line through with the top cornice of the main building. The extension was clad in brick to match the existing building giving a solid end to the composition. Lightweight materials were used for the new elements in contrast with the heavier masonry element allowing an accurate reading of the building’s evolution.
