Stratis was delighted to work alongside architects Page\Park and contractors McLaughlin & Harvey at this stunning £24M redevelopment of one of Glasgow's most iconic buildings.
The stunning Domus Tex range was used to create a feature wall in the café.
This unique partnership between Glasgow City Council, Glasgow Life, the University of Glasgow and the National Library of Scotland saw this historic venue transformed into an exciting new centre of cultural excellence providing collections’ storage, teaching and research, alongside a state-of-the-art Glasgow Club health and fitness centre.
Safe, secure and publicly accessible museum storage was created for the internationally-important Hunterian and Glasgow Museums' collections. Around 1.5 million objects, previously stored in various locations around the city, were relocated to the new facility. This included the only surviving complete suite of interiors by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for Mrs Cranston’s Ingram Street tearooms which will undergo conservation works in public view.
The venue has also become the new home for the National Library of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive resulting in improved access to the public to more than 100 years of Scottish history on film and video. Visitors now have access to over 60,000 film reels, videotapes and digital files as well as the National Library of Scotland’s other licensed digital collections.
