Glasgow Housing Association proceed with 29 south side homes
November 19 2018
Glasgow Housing Association is seeking permission to build 29 new homes bounded by the White Cart Water in the south side of Glasgow designed by Anderson Bell + Christie.
Occupying land formerly utilised as a school at Damshot Crescent the scheme seeks to establish a strong street frontage by way of a perimeter block and central courtyard which will overlook Pollok Country Park.
This will take the form of a curved front element meeting a square rear block that punctures the street elevation with an express end gable.
In a statement the architects wrote: “Most of the flats look onto the courtyard which will be sensitively landscaped with seating areas, supplementary drying amenity and planting to create an attractive gathering/community space. The ground floor flats benefit from small rear gardens which look onto the courtyard that are defined by raised planters which also provide screening.”
Fibre cement tiles will be brought down from roof level on courtyard elevations to create the impression of a mansard roof and reduce the apparent scale.
