Perspective from top of the site - facing south towards Glasgow city centre

Landscape plays a massive part in the design. Entering the site from North-side provides a view of a specifically designed park with plenty of local greenery, glancing at Glasgow city centre in the background. The building itself, however, is not yet visible, which feeds the idea of hierarchy between nature and built environment.

Perspective from top of the Hub

This view shows the path that navigates on top of the Hub building. The building 'opens up' to the viewer, uncovering the Glulam-supported openings on the slopy site that cannot be seen after walking past them.


UFEx Applecross provides opportunities for social events and gatherings. The Bar Boat travels between Maryhill and Applecross, and through four different stops people can jump in or out of the boat. As the canal has previously lacked in hospitality sector, this is an attempt to brign the surroundings of the canal back to life. The central social space on the site is pictured here. The already existing, protected Rockvilla House is being turned into a Creative Hub, which can work symbiotically with UFEx to turn the site into a centre of culture. This very space is surrounded by most of the activities the site offers, which gives visitors, pedestrians walking by, and users of the buildings a shared space to gather in.
