Flats plan drives Dennistoun debate
November 17 2017
Vellow Wood Architecture have been commissioned to oversee the 100 Finlay Drive build with the intention of creating an ‘elegant classically-inspired’ building which takes its design cues from the surrounding tenement grid.
In their design statement the architects observed: “Vertically, the form to both elevations is defined in reference to the classical tenement’s “bottom, middle and top” arrangement with a base separated by a string course, a central section topped by a cornice-shelf, and a penthouse or roof top section in a darker material. This gives a sense of connection to place but reinterpreted in a contemporary manner.”
In form the proposed L-plan block will have a protruding cube-shaped corner feature building out to the bay windows of neighboring properties and topped by a penthouse flat although brick will be used in place of stone on cost grounds.
Public representations on the proposal must be made today with many locals having already weighed in with their views.
