East End Sawmills

A single storey extension to a sawmill in the east end of Glasgow.

Following a fire, which destroyed the public face of the building, NORD were approached to design a replacement showroom and office.

The single storey timber structure is constructed entirely from material sourced within the adjacent warehouse. The single use of timber as a material not only simplifies the form but also creates an ambiguity between structure and skin, heightening the intensity of the material and product.
