Saturday 11 August 2012: Ca'D'Oro
Heading for Glasgow Central Station, I could not resist taking a quick shot of the Ca'D'Oro building. I liked how you could see the reflections of the other buildings.
The Ca' D'Oro Building is situated at the corner of Union Street and Gordon Street. Architect John Honeyman is said to have based his design for what was originally a furniture warehouse, opened in 1872, on the "Golden House" in Venice. It was built using triple-arched cast iron frames with masonry arches above the shops below. Above the arches, large bay and round windows are framed by Doric and Corinthian columns.
The Ca' D'Oro Building is a Glasgow Landmark.
