The site is located in the village of Milngavie on the outskirts of Glasgow. Manson were appointed by Tesco Stores Ltd to design a Store on Stilts replacing the 50,000 sq ft store currently located on the site.
The historic setting of the adjacent village was a significant aspect of the geometric solution for the project. The sloping site, river setting and town links were incorporated into the architectural solution. Stepped roof forms, varied facade solutions and careful landscape design would integrate the proposal with the town centre.
Local resident participation regarding the required town centre links were key in
forming a relationship between shoppers and the buildings.
