Gareth Hoskins Architects table Partickhill Bowling Club refurbishment
June 4 2014refurbishment and expansion of Partickhill Bowling Club to improve the existing clubhouse and garden area and build six new homes within the grounds.
Intended to revitalise the club as a community hub offering a wider range of sports and activities the scheme will be financed by the sale of unused tennis courts to property development firm Noah, facilitating the housing component of the plan.
In their design statement Hoskins write: “The proposed scheme is distinct from the surrounding tenement buildings and detached villas and aligned along the mews lane and proposes brick as an appropriate facing material.
Fenestration is simple with large vertically oriented openings, which evoke the surrounding window and bay pattern, set a full brick deep, rather than the more usual half brick, so as to give a more substantial articulation seen obliquely, which is the view seen from most approaches.”
