New housing to anchor Barrowfield-Camlachie gap site
January 29 201852 new homes in the Barrowfield-Camlachie area of Glasgow.
Providing a mix of townhouses, maisonettes and flats on a brownfield site between Bridgeton and Parkhead off Barrowfield Street and Fielden Place.
Taking the form of a single block of flats accompanied by two smaller blocks of terraced townhouses, all faced in grey/buff brick, the scheme has been designed as a landmark building bookending the block.
Outlining their design approach the architects observed: “The six-storey element of the flatted block incorporates a two storey recess at the corner of Feilden Street and Barrowfield Street creating a feature and anchor point for the building, whilst also affording an additional degree of privacy to ground floor flats adjacent to Barrowfield Street.
“A recessed close also reduces the impact of the mass of the building and creates the impression of two slender towers within this corner of the site.”
A communal pocket park will sit at the centre of the site, linking to earlier phases of housing through additional landscaping.
