Govan regeneration continues with new infill housing
November 13 201482 home development on the site of the former Hills trust Primary School, Govan, on behalf of Elderpark Housing Association.
Arranged around a shared surface car park properties will share a ‘simple aesthetic’ of twin facing brick types and concrete string courses – with the exception of a fifth storey of apartments which has been detailed as a copper mansard roof in an effort to minimise apparent height.
This block, built as a feature curve, forms a strong street edge to the north and west behind which lower scale two storey cottage blocks.
In a statement Mast said: “Whilst we wish to deliver a ‘feature’ block at the corner of Golspie Street and Harmony Row, we have sought to provide appropriate articulation to the main facades to avoid the block becoming too dominant in its immediate area. As the building turns the corner it steps back and down, providing a distinct break in the built form with prominent gables.
“However, as the block progresses toward the existing properties at Harmony Place, we have ensured that the gable at the end has been treated as a main elevation.”
