Lenzie school set for residential conversion
June 6 2018
Holmes Miller has put its name to plans by Vaga Developments for the restoration and conversion of the former Lenzie Primary School on Kirkintilloch Road to form 20 flats.
Marketed ta downsizers the development, just submitted to East Dunbartonshire Council for approval, will contain a mix of converted and new-build homes connected by an unobtrusive entrance court.
In a blog post the architects wrote: “The existing building heights have been exploited to create two storey partial maisonettes over the two existing levels in the restored school, with the main living rooms retained as double height spaces. The existing double height atrium space with extensive rooflight is to be retained and restored to provide communal access to the renovated flats. A new extension provides nine additional flats, with full height glazing to all rooms, through a mix of French balustrades and balconies.
“The extension is to be finished in a mix of natural stone to the main frontage and facing brick to the side and rear elevations, with high quality composite windows throughout.”
