Mast seek planning for 37 Pollok homes
Rosehill Housing Co-operative and Mast Architects have submitted plans for 37 detached and terraced homes on brownfield land at Househillwood Crescent, Pollok.

Set in an area of interwar housing on a plot once occupied by a school the homes will be situated along a landscaped strip with a pedestrian through route connecting to nearby open space.

In their design statement the architects observed: “We are proposing a single base material of brick to bring uniformity to the house types with feature panels of brick detailing to living room windows and entrance ways. This panelling will be a combination of corbelled brick work and precast string courses. We believe providing strong, simple robust details will provide a modern house aesthetic.”

A site start has been scheduled for April 2016.

Devoid of all (any) aspiration

The rainwater pipe at the top left looks pretty nasty. The stepped back roof is just weird -all it does it draw attention to a double height blank wall on a main facade. This has no cohesion at all. Also, whats the obsession with austere brick buildings at the moment? Architecture is starting to become nothing more than a cut and paste series of fads.

Why bother paying for architects? Any cad-chimp could come up with this stuff and save the fees. I'd file this one under non-architecture really.....

Show some respect for your technicians please.
We only draw up what we are told to.

Personally, I prefer the 1970's Wimpy originals.
