Alumno complete work on Partick student residential build
August 12 2014winning planning permission.
Faced with blonde sandstone, dark brick and zinc the scheme offers 174 rooms and ground floor retail, presenting alternating ‘shoes of stone’ to break up the buildings mass from the street.
In a design statement Carson & Partners said: “The principle idea for the site, in terms of both programme and massing, has been to treat the design as a series of defined blocks which vary in scale according to context .
“The strategy behind the placement of the block on site has been developed to reinstate a unified and coherent streetscape to the old Comet site block providing a strong edge to Dumbarton Road / Keith Street and Walker Street.”
A rooftop amenity deck has also been created for use by residents.
