West End townhouses set for residential comeback
ZM Architecture have taken the lead on behalf of Belhaven to convert the University of Glasgow’s Dalrymple Hall at Belhaven Terrace West from student rental to private residential.

This will see the existing terrace converted together with construction of six mews properties fronting a lane to the rear.

Detailing the proposed changes ZM wrote: “The proposal is to convert all parts of the original townhouses from their current institutional and educational use back to residential. The works involve the demolition and removal of obtrusive internal features such as the centralised washing and wc facilities, a lift core, extensive steel mezzanine galleries etc. These works include reworking of a rear escape stair added in 1976. The Dining hall in particular has a detrimental e?ect on the building and its external amenity levels. The demolition of the Dining Hall will create a more sympathetic relationship of back elevation to garden space and reveal lower ground stonework.”

Five flats will be formed within each of the three townhouses together with a further five mews properties forming a linear building line faced in a sandstone coursed rubble wall with areas of charred and oiled larch, render, zinc and slate.
