1073 Argyle Street sits on a triangular site fronting onto Argyle Street where the Finnieston Railway Line cuts through the urban block formed by the St Vincent Crescent and Napier Place tenements.

The new building seeks to be compatible with the overall integrity of the area and reinforces the classical tenement street edge to Argyle Street with a strong formal elevation respecting the scale and rhythm of Napier Place. The street elevation has an enhanced ground floor zone of retail units below a main wall of four floors of residential flats and a stepped back roofscape of 2 storeys.

The upper floors of 50 flatted dwellings are organised in a double banked plan form which is clearly expressed in the eventual massing and treatment of front and rear blocks. By holding a shorter block away from the tenement wall of the street dual aspect viewing is maximised. The curved rear elevation of angled and recessed screens and private balconies exploits the sun and views over garden backcourts and the St Vincent Crescent to the south.
