Newton Mearns apartment block returns with reduced scale
September 27 2022
Convery Prenty Shields Architects have returned with plans for three, three-bedroom apartments in Newton Mearns following the withdrawal of proposals for four apartments lodged with East Renfrewshire Council.
The latest scheme includes landscaping and associated engineering works on 1,000sq/m of vacant land adjacent to Mearns Medical Centre on Maple Avenue.
The loss of one flat will permit the massing of the white render and grey standing seam zinc block to be slightly reduced, with each apartment occupying an entire floor with access to a private stainless steel balcony.
Backing onto Ayr Road at the first-floor level the scheme includes 176sq/m of common amenity space set amidst mature trees with a private garden allocated to the ground-floor residence.
An engineered slope will manage the significant change in levels from front to back, establishing a tiered landscape with private amenity space.
Must do a lot better with material choice.
