Quartet of townhouses proposed for Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens
June 23 2016quartet of town houses on Glasgow’s Botanic Crescent Lane on behalf of Exchange Court Properties.
The small scale intervention will take the place of a number of domestic garages and will afford each dwelling its own courtyard garden, terrace and dedicated parking space.
Adopting the traditional language of a tenement back court wall to the south for privacy the scheme will make use of greyish-brown brick and Corten steel in an echo of the workshops which line the lane.
In a design statement Stallan-Brand noted: “The proposed development is formed by two architectural moves; the ‘Lane Wall’ and the individual dwellings. The ‘Lane Wall’ begins at Unit one wraps around the entire site, defining edges and creating an access lane to the rear of the development.”
Access to the semi-public rear courts will be maintained following the development.

Great to see architects designing to match the surrounding context... i.e. the electricity substation.

(Not at all sure about the defensive tinted glass though. Other means? Too much like on a xxxx-off ugly bmw white 4x4.)
