Laurieston House, Glasgow

Holmes Miller designed the initial phases of this major repair and restoration of a Grade ‘A’ listed merchant’s house on the south bank of the Clyde, close to Glasgow city centre. The work was carried out on behalf of Strathclyde Building Preservation Trust, with funding from the Glasgow Development Agency, Historic Scotland and Glasgow District Council.
This house is an early 19th century Georgian property, situated in Carlton Place and facing north over the River Clyde. It consists of two adjacent and inter-linked town houses. The extensive repair works include foundation and structural repairs, rot eradication. re-roofing, stone repairs, overhaul and renewal of windows.
Contract documentation is prepared for the restoration of the fabulous plasterwork in all the public rooms of the house when funding becomes available
