Camphill Gate tenement is located in the Shawlands area of Glasgow, on Pollockshaws Road just north east of the junction with Langside Avenue.

The building is B listed.

Credited to architect John Nisbet in 1906, the structure is described as a symmetrical 5-storey tenement of red ashlar with Art Nouveau ornament, having canted window bays with a wider pair at the centre, and turreted outer bays with domed roofs at each end. The building has a flat-roof with iron railings over wallhead. The ground floor comprises shop units. There are 24 flats and 12 shop units.

The flat roof was incorporated to provide a drying area as there was insufficient space to provide a suitable drying green at ground level.

The 5-storey structure is less common than 4-storey in Glasgow, and is believed to be the first building of fireproof construction in the city, have roof and floors by the Albion Fireproof Constructing Company, their first commission in Glasgow.Camphill Gate Tenement
