Broomlea School housing plan submitted
Mast architects have submitted plans to erect 14 townhouses for social rent, 18 flats for mid-market rent and 16 supported accommodation units on the site of the former (unlisted) Broomlea School. Partick.

Built for Partick Housing Association these are oriented to maximise passive solar gain and to create a frontage to Broomhill Lane and formed around a new cul-de-sac on the steeply sloping site.

Each block will adopt the same palette of materials consisting of coloured laminate panels and brick with the townhouses built to passivhaus principle.

Adopting a split level arrangement to reflect the topography the properties have been given a modern appearance with shared spaces and landscaped grounds laid on the relatively flat area of land at the centre.
Private amenity spaces will be provided via rear garden spaces

These really are truly awful 3D images.

The context is a complete joke and bears no relation to what is actually around the edges of the site.

The facade renderings are so poor and do not show any of the qualities of the materials that will be required for a sensitive development of this scale.

In the same league as the Egyptian Halls 3D images...so perhaps the developer wants to be refused permission :D
