Camphill Gate tenement is a B listed building in the Shawlands conservation area of Glasgow. Originally designed by architect John Nisbet in 1906.
Redpath is delivering fabric repairs to this iconic building.
This was Glasgow’s first tenement to be built with a fireproof roof which was designed to be used as a ‘roof garden’ and drying area. This was considered ground-breaking at the time and is still unique to this tenement. We have undertaken extensive and specialist roof repairs which included the replacement of the mastic asphalt. The existing cast iron railings on the perimeter edge were removed for sensitive restoration and then reinstated.
Working with Fiona Sinclair Architects, we are delivering:
With all 24 flats in the building occupied and 12 retail units fully operational, our project team has fostered good community and stakeholder relationships to ensure as little disruption as possible during our work.
The Camphill Gate Residents Association has campaigned to raise funds to restore the building to its former glory and preserve an important part of the Southside’s heritage. Funds have also been provided by Glasgow City Heritage Trust and Glasgow City Council.
