1966-70, Skinner, Bailey & Lubetkin
This Category A listed Brutalist building, part of the Cowcaddens emergency services area, is dominated by the red cross of St Andrew's First Aid. Inside, look out for Modernist features like the remarkable Lubetkin cantilevered staircase and vertical timber panels.
The much admired cantilevered staircase and vertical timber panels – polished on the ground floor and rough-hewn in the Board Room - are both hallmarks of Berthold Lubetkin, the pioneering British Modernist.
Designated A-listed the building is dominated by the red cross of St Andrew's First Aid and the remarkable Lubetkin cantilevered staircase. Other features include tesserae, concrete, stone and coloured glass. You'll be able to find them all with the help of our guides and handy visitor notes.
St Andrew’s First Aid embodies many of the modernist beliefs. Our work in bringing first aid and volunteering opportunities to Scotland provides a social function, working towards a safer, stronger Scotland where together, we can save lives. While you're visiting the building you will be able to watch lifesaving demonstrations and see some of the fascinating items from our long history as Scotland's first aid charity.
