A new and exciting development in the West End of Glasgow required planning permission from Glasgow City Council and it was successfully granted in January 2019.

Iceni Projects, consultants on the application, put in plans to convert the existing office space at Woodlands Road to student accommodation, with the addition of a single storey roof extension.

Iceni enlisted the expert help of OOBE on the scheme as it required landscape and public realm design associated with the overall residential development.

OOBE provided plans that included the interactive landscape design of the open amenity space around the building.

The plans also contain a development of planting palettes for both raised and in-ground solutions depending on the levels and access requirements, an allowance for street furniture and potential artwork.
