Alexander Adam
(fl. c. 1893-1939)

Specialising in tenement design, he collaborated with John Short in the designs for tenements in Partickhill Road and the ogee-capped blocks at the junction of Clarence Drive and Hyndland Road (1899).

During this time he operated from premises at 95 Bath Street, 1894, and 212 St. Vincent Street, 1897-1914.

His only other identified work is the terracotta Ice Factory and Cold Store, Osborne Street (1901-02, dem.).

His sons Alexander and Mathew also pursued successful architectural careers.
