Cube HA submit Maryhill flats plan
March 24 201452 flats at Kelvindale Place, Glasgow, incorporating a mixture of homes for social rent and supported accommodation.
Designed by Mast Architects the scheme will replace a number of interwar tenements which are scheduled for demolition with new build brick-clad buildings which seek to provide a ‘modern interpretation of Glasgow tenements’.
Commenting on the scheme mast noted in their design statement: “The design incorporates a layered approach to the elevations building in depth to the facade that typically tenements have in the stone detailing, bay windows and corbelling. The pre-cast bands which are prominent to the design reflect the historical banding and respond to the adjacent tenement balcony features. The recessed brick panels continue the rhythm of opportunities along Kelvindale Road.
“This design ethos is continued within the development on the supported accommodation building. The access decks are defined with a precast horizontal band light weight metal handrail and features infill panels/louvers to create verticality to the block.
“Feature built in seating is incorporated into the building elevation to utilise the south facing aspect and encourage communal interaction.”
