New Adagio Aparthotel opens on Glasgow’s waterfront

The iconic Grade A Listed Custom House on the banks of the River Clyde is has been fully redeveloped and includes a new purpose built 162-bed Adagio aparthotel. The scheme forms part of a larger upliftment programme for a new leisure and hospitality quarter that is breathing new life into the city’s centrally located riverside area.

The striking and modern Aparthotel has been sensitively designed with strong references to the ‘industrial might’ of the Glasgow shipbuilders and compliments the architectural vernacular of the local area. Internally, considerate attention to detail includes elements in the fixtures and fittings that also reference Glasgow’s shipbuilding past, along with muted complimentary tones and expertly crafted fabrics from the Isle of Bute, which give the hotel an authentic but modern feel.

The Aparthotel links to The Custom House via a covered courtyard and glazed roof and offers beautiful design-led public spaces that include a library and a gym.

rpa:group has worked with Adagio as local Project Management consultants on an advisory role for the entirety of the scheme.

The hotel  opened its doors in early December and as part of the launch, saw a collaboration with final-year students from the prestigious BA (Hons) Textile Design course at The Glasgow School of Art to create their own version of the famous Glaswegian designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s rose, which has been adopted by the city. The three winning designs will be selected and displayed within the aparthotel, further infusing a local resonance to the space.
