Former Partick school to house 60 new homes
April 18 2016
To achieve this the Victorian school will be joined by a linked new build section designed to extend the grid iron residential neighbourhood with a similarly scaled block to the east, providing a mix of 1-3 bed homes for social and mid-market rent as well as supported accommodation.
In a statement the architects observed: “Smooth cut blonde sandstone envelopes the new build south block to accentuate a modern architectural form and contrast with the retained existing red ashlar stone school via recessed glazed closes. Balconies are carved into the block and clad in oxidised Nordic Brown copper to provide visual prominence and help animate the street.”
Subject to planning approval work could get underway by October for completion in April 2018.
