A 3,000 sq. ft apartment conversion from the ‘B’ Listed Basil Spence building being refurbished by Duffy & Batt (now Studio DuB) : external shot misses ground level Majestic Wine ‘warehouse’.
Located amongst the tenements on Causewayside, south of the city centre, this was the first commercial property designed by Scottish architect Sir Basil Spence. It is in the International Modern style, with Art Deco finishes.
It was almost lost to the bulldozers until a sympathetic owner had it transformed into a retail unit with loft apartment in the late 1990s.
