‘Crisp’ homes mark post-tenement future for Drumchapel
June 11 2018
Glasgow and Cernach Housing Associations have pulled the trigger on a development of 134 homes at Linkwood Drive, Drumchapel, in the latest phase of an ongoing estate regeneration programme.
Mast Architects have been appointed to deliver the project which will include a mix of terraced and semi-detached homes and flats, 16 of which are adapted for wheelchair use.
Each home will be delivered to a unified design including clipped eaves detail and exaggerated concrete pre-cast sills with contrasting soldier course to form a ‘crisp’ elevation. Grey timber doors have been specified to complete the look.
Costed at £18m the development supplants a group of former tenements and comes complete with energy-saving features such as solar panels.
Explaining their landscape approach Mast wrote: “The changes in level between the three urban blocks are acknowledged through the site within the internal landscaped zones between on looking houses. These landscaped areas not only tackle the vast change in level but offer more privacy and seclusion to the rear of each house.”
Completion is timetabled for early 2020.
