Principal's House, Strathclyde University, Jordanhill Campus, 1997, McNeish Design Partnership

Competition winner for formal residence and hospitality facility. Simple white pavilion, double-height drum public space and private rooms in rectangular rear wing, reminiscent of Basil Spence's Gribloch but without the 'Hollywood Regency'. (See Stirling and the Trossachs Guide.)
