Green light sought for brownfield Partickhill housing
November 27 2017Middlefield School in Partickhill, Glasgow.
This plan calls for completion of the urban block by building out to existing tenement lines with frontages to Hyndland Avenue and Partickhill Road faced in natural blonde sandstone. Two setback upper floors will be clad in pressed metal.
In their design statement the architects wrote: “The rhythm of the large existing tenement proportioned windows will be echoed by similarly proportioned openings, each provided to the front with glazed Juliet balconies, while double height deep punched entrances will combine with the solidly proportioned bay windows to bring rhythm to the elevations.
“On the corner into of Hyndland Avenue and Partickhill Road the corner will be celebrated by a junction of sheer glass as it turns the corner.”
LDA Design will oversee tree planting to the front and rear elevations with a first-floor landscaped amenity deck above ground floor parking opening out onto the interior of the urban block.
