Framing the fringe of the cities Financial services district Sentinel adapts the best of American modernism with a unique LED lighting system, where colours on each floor and facade can be controlled independantly. See gm+ad's most recent office project.
Two penthouse floors have been added to this neoclassical building bestowing an element of height that the original failed to reacH, making for an impressive pairing when viewed alongside the similarly treated Sutherland House.
A conjoined commercial and residential pairing at Infiniti drags to completion under a prolonged gestation following a liability pass the parcel. Progressed to steelwork under a low grade 3DReid design prior to gm+ad coming on board. A fair commercial product now hides ugly residential sibling with a vacant expanse of zinc implying anticipation of a southern neighbour. Situated adjacent to Skypark.
Completion date -June 2006 (Casino) / January 2007 (Etap)
Springfield Quay is significantly smaller than the above "regional" casinos and as such is inhibited by less regulation. Plans also incorporate bars, restaurants and a multi storey car park (underneath the hotel). Site will connect to Cheapside via a new pedestrian Footbridge.
Refurbishment of the Grade 2 listed former Govan Police Station and original Burgh Hall has provided a business centre adapted for open plan and `incubator` community offices, with new vertical circulation and secure parking. A previously painted and `blackened` stone facade has been restored, with the north wing having its facade rebuilt and a new floor added. Various later ill advised additions to the grade B listed John Burnett designed original have been removed and new curtain walled stair/lift towers inserted, providing visual clarity to the two separate building types.

A torid Floridian retail complex naively attempts to brighten up dismal East Kilbride with a tasteless confection of pastel hued render aping a Spanish Hacienda or Turkish Prison.
