C-listed former Dalmarnock school to house 111 new homes
November 4 2015
Jewitt & Wilkie Architects and Spectrum Properties have drawn up plans for the residential conversion and extension of the C-listed former Strathclyde Public School and nearby print works at Dalmarnock, Glasgow, which latterly served as the Strathclyde Business Centre.
Sharing a public square opposite the newly opened Clyde Smart Bridge the planned development marks the ongoing regeneration of the formerly industrial area driven by significant investment by Clyde Gateway.
Two new build blocks will be built on the outer edges of this site, ‘bookending’ the existing buildings and fronting areas of expanded public realm with cantilevered and inset balconies.
In their design statement the architects observed: “Whilst the new buildings will stand free from the others, the language and materials to be used will reflect those of the existing buildings to help it integrate and create a cohesive development.
“Concrete banding and grey/blue brick will reflect the old Print Works, with smooth concrete panels creating a new and modern termination to the site.
“Timber floor finishes and undersides of the balconies help to soften an otherwise industrial palate and also echo the panels within the new build element to the east of the site.”
A total of 111 homes will be provided across the development.
