72 Charlotte Street – Glasgow

72 Charlotte Street – Glasgow
Construction: 1964
Architects: Isi Metzstein and Andy McMillan

This building is currently home to the Wise Group social enterprise, but was originally designed as part of Our Lady and St Francis Secondary School for girls. The frame of the building is concrete and the walls are purple engineering brick. The structure sitting on top of the podium has a pleasing modular look, created by wall and window sections protruding from glazed connecting areas. A slightly overhanging concrete roof and small service tower repeat the wedge pattern seen in the modules below. An interesting design and a smart little building.
