CCG and Mast team up for Govanhill infill
January 6 201722 infill homes on behalf of Govanhill Housing Association on the site of a modernist church, Our Lady of Consolation RC Church, which was demolished in 2014.
Offering a mix of one-bedroom through to four bedroom flats, all for social rent, the scheme has been set back to maximise on-street parking.
In their design statement Mast observed: “Large windows and tall storey heights have been included so as to establish an aesthetic that is consistent with that of its surroundings. Externally, the building is expressed as three distinct elements, with the circulation cores recessed and clad in darker materials (zinc) to further enhance this.
“Materially, a red-brown brick has been selected so as to complement the red sandstone of the adjacent tenement on west Inglefield Street. Additionally, both the Inglefield Street elevation, and the elevation to the back court, are characterized by recessed buff brick panels which have been included to give nodes of visual interest.”
Delivery will be fast-tracked by employing CCG’s off-site manufacturing process.
