MLA have sympathetically transformed the Turnbull Building, originally a tobacco warehouse and, more recently, offices for Strathclyde University into student accommodation. The building now provides 87 studio apartments and a 2 bedroom apartment along with a gym, laundry, cinema, communal break out facilities and cycle storage.

Keeping the traditional sandstone frontage, the interior was completely re-configured and a new two storey contemporary addition added to the roof.
