Stewart Milne file Festival Park vision for Glasgow’s Pacific Quay
February 1 2018203 homes adjacent to Festival Park at Glasgow’s Pacific Quay.
Overseen by Haus Architects the scheme will include a mix of townhouses, colony-style housing and flats in a series of inward facing buildings that form a strong urban edge to the north, east and western site boundaries.
Faced primarily in mixed brickwork, with limited use of metal panels and stone, the proposed buildings will reduce in scale in proportion to proximity with Festival Park to the south, with a corresponding increase in green space to blur division between the two.
Detailing their approach Haus wrote: “Dynamic forms and the material palette respond to the historic context of the site, the shipyards.
“Large linear forms; seating, avenues of trees, blocks of ornamental planting and desire lines across the site help to portray the historic relevance. The forms also respond to primary circulation needs but also define the central arrival space, creating a flexible core for a range of events including street activities, local market stalls and community performances.”
Colour, specifically the use of red, grey and dark brick, will be used to harmonise the different housing types throughout the site.
Hard wearing stone, concrete and clay will be used alongside bound gravel and hardwood decking in landscaped areas
