West End mews homes secure planning consent
A development of seven mews properties on the site of lock-up garages within Glasgow’s west end conservation area have been given the go-ahead by planners, clearing a path to delivery of the Richard Murphy Architects design.

Facing onto Redlands Lane with a new private access road, off street parking and private gardens the scheme backs onto the existing Lowther Terrace.

In their design statement the architects noted: “The existing five storey residential block on Lowther Terrace has a large impact on the existing site in terms of overshadowing the site to the north.

“By placing the new development as far up to the North boundary as possible, the maximum amount of sunlight penetration available can be gained. Additionally, the new proposal utilises a monopitch roof with south facing high level clearstory glazing allowing the available sunlight into the depth of the house plan.”

Work is expected to commence early next year.
