Located in the heart of Glasgow city centre, Native Glasgow sees the multi-million-pound restoration of an Edwardian Art Deco office building, formerly the headquarters of the Anchor Line Shipping Company, into a aparthotel, offering 64 apartments ranging from studio to penthouse spaces.
Native worked alongside interior architects ICA to preserve the building’s heritage. The hotel has original features including glazed tiles, terrazzo flooring, timber wall panelling and fireplaces.
Native Glasgow’s facilities will include, 24-hour reception, concierge and free high-speed Wi-Fi. In addition to this, the building’s ground and basement floors are home to two restaurants, The Anchor Line and Atlantic, which are open from breakfast through to dinner.
Guy Nixon, CEO of Native said: “This is a rare opportunity to reimagine a piece of Glasgow’s shipping heritage as a uniquely special space for the city’s visitors to stay. The building’s glazed façade sold it to us as the ideal location for our first Scottish venture, it’s embedded with nautical emblems, seaweed and seashells.
“We have worked in close partnership with building owners, the White Building Properties Company, to mirror the design ethos and opulence of a 1920s ocean liner. Native Glasgow feels like an exciting milestone in our plans to expand our aparthotel business across all major UK cities.”
