White Cart River to be lined by 154 new homes
December 8 2016154 town houses and flats at Riverford Road, Glasgow, on industrial land bounded by a loop of the White Cart River.
Overlooking Auldhouse Park the scheme has been oriented to maximise properties with river and park views by stepping properties down in height toward the river edge.
In a design statement the architects said: “The proposed built form adopts a simple and robust approach to the elevational treatment of each block in attempts to refer to parts of both the traditional industrial brick buildings adjacent to the site and the dwelling types within the surrounding area.
“In order to create interest and character, material modules are manipulated to reflect the range of townhouses and flat types on offer across the site. Similarly, corners of blocks and terraces are highlighted through subtle changes in detailing and material colour to define key streets spaces as well as views between blocks through to the riverside.”
Properties will be configured to offer balconies and terraces with river views or positioned to enjoy aspect over communal open spaces.
