South Canal Bank

South Canal Bank
2012
A new focus to the town. The proposals include redefining the market and town square, rennovation and relocation of the bandstand, graphic signing to building facades, canal towpath resurfacing, play space and the animation of the canal through the space with new access to the canal edge.

The project is a key element of the Clydebank masterplan, led by Clydebank re-built. Clydebank’s ship building and industrial past
informed the design proposals of geometry, paving materials, play areas and street furniture.

• Local school pupil’s art work is incorporated into solar lights, recessed into the paving
• The play and sculptural elements portray the three Cunard cruise ships which were built in Clydebank
• The route of the old railway lines are represented in the Three Queens Square paving, terminated with granite buffer seating blocks
• The paving patterns recreate the essence of steam arising from the tracks
