Adam Architecture penned Kelvinside flats plan resubmitted
May 20 2015proposals dating back to 2012 to build 90 homes at Clouston Street, Kelvinside, by submitting a fresh planning application - after the original was thrown out for lacking key documentation.
Despite the near three year hiatus the scheme as proposed remains largely unchanged from its previous incarnation, save for the addition of two new homes to Kelbourne Street and an increase in height of flatted accommodation on Sanda Street from four to five storeys.
Designed by Adam Architecture the scheme would supplant former playing fields, since turned into a community wild space, with traditionally styled new build homes intended to be in keeping with the surrounding conservation area.
In their design statement Adam Architecture said: “A combination of strong, simple vernacular forms, with more ornate corner and gateway buildings, are composed in a traditional urban block form, giving each street a slightly different character.”
Facades will be finished in a mixture of natural and reconstituted stone, harling and stucco with feature copper roof turrets.
A line of protected lime trees on Clouston Street will be felled and replaced by 'uniformly spaced' alternatives
