Kelvindale railway lands give ground to housing
July 6 2017former railway sidings at the junction of Temple and Dalsholm Road within the Kelvindale area of Glasgow.
Comprising a mix of apartments and terraced housing on the triangular ‘island’ site the scheme will be bounded by railway lines on two sides and a main frontage to Dalsholm Road.
Outlining the concept behind their design the architects wrote: “The proposals have been designed to present a combination of tiered elements with simple proportions and openings to all faces.
Limited openings to the easterly and northerly aspects avoid any issue of loss of privacy, in contrast to the southern and western elevations which have been opened up with larger expanses of glazing and incorporated open balconies to allow light to penetrate into the plan.”
Arranged around a new access road and public square the properties will be housed within five separate blocks with nine townhouses benefitting from private rear gardens.
External walls will be finished in facing buff brick with natural timber coloured composite weather boarding and light grey standing seam zinc.
