Other Information

  • South Lanarkshire Council HQ, formerly known as the Lanark County Buildings, are one of the most monumental exercises of Modernism within Scotland.
  • With an eighteen floor administrative office tower as the centrepiece of the development, the designed features facades of anodised aluminium curtain walling to the north and south with white ceramic on the east and west sides.
  • Also notable is the council chamber situated on the western side of the site. Thanks to its placing and circular in nature it perhaps resembles a modern take on a chapter house with strong vertical lines and detailing that just about manages to hint at gothicism.
