New homes set for historic west end school
August 19 2022
A historic former school dating from the 1890s at 39 Napiershall Street in Glasgow's West End is to be converted into 24 apartments by Kelvin Properties.
The former Napiershall Street Centre at the corner of Great Western Road and Maryhill Road will be sensitively restored and joined by a new build L-plan block providing a further 25 flats.
Key to the approach of Haus Architects will be the creation of a metal rainscreen rooftop extension to crown the old school.
Marc Taylor, director of Kelvin Properties, said: “Our plans will allow a community to flourish and reinvigorate an incredible building, while protecting the environment and boosting the local economy.
“Glasgow’s west end continues to be a welcoming and highly attractive place to live and demand for properties continues to grow. We’re very pleased to have submitted plans for the redevelopment that would restore this stunning building to its former glory and provide much-needed high-quality homes in a fantastic location. Although the building isn’t listed, we will retain its fantastic architectural features.
“We have also made sure to maximise outdoor space for the residents - we feel the rooftop space will be particularly attractive.”
Subject to planning consent work could get underway by spring 2023.
Residents will benefit from shared amenities including a rooftop garden, play parks and growing areas
