Stewart Milne propose 77 infill homes for Cathcart
Stewart Milne Homes and Turley Design have drafted plans for the construction of 77 new homes on land formerly occupied by St Oswald’s School, Cathcart.

The proposal envisages development of townhouses and apartments on 1.4 hectares of cleared land, ranging up to four storeys in height.

Outlining the design of these blocks Turley observed: “Views through the development are framed and terminated by buildings, creating interest and aiding legibility. The range of roof styles and pitches will create variances in ridge height, adding further interest to the development.

“Architectural features such as gables, hipped and pitched roofs reflect elements of the local vernacular. Projecting elements to the apartment buildings break down the elevations and create interest in the streetscene.”

Properties will be finished in a mix of brick, stone, render and weatherboard cladding.

White render and rough blonde stone might be the naffest combo of materials in the history of architecture. I bet the show flat includes garden gnomes out front.

Did this one somehow sneak in from 1996? The site plan looks deeply disspiriting - all disjointed pitched-roof blocks, frontages dominated by parking, over-engineered road layouts and incredibly clumsy changes of level. Not a trace of Designing Streets or anything else reflecting even the stuttering progress in urban design over the last 20 years. Surely GCC have to knock this back.

A maintenance nightmare in a few years time.
