Virginia Hotel, Glasgow

Core Associates produced a sympathetic design for the conversion of the Category A Listed Jacobean Building in Virginia Street, Glasgow into a boutique hotel including restaurant and bar areas.

The site sits within an important part of the Merchant City. It enjoys easy walking routes through this part of Glasgow to the main shopping areas and mainline stations of Glasgow Central and Queen Street.

Proposals included a dynamic new entrance at the rear of the building that incorporated a new stair and lift together with upgrades to the outside courtyard area to provide an exciting area that could be used by the restaurant and bar.
