Elderpark Housing Association extend copper theme to new head office

CCG have been given the go-ahead by Elderpark Housing Association to proceed with a £14.5m residential and commercial development at the former Hill’s Trust School in Govan.

The project will deliver a combined 82 terraced houses and cottage flats, alongside transformation of the B-listed school itself into office space for the social housing provider.

This work will necessitate repairs to the current fabric as well as the addition of a ‘sympathetic’ copper-clad contemporary addition.

Both elements of the scheme have been designed by Mast Architects, who wrote of the proposed office space: “The new build element will be clad in copper; a complementary material which respects the soft tones of the existing blond sandstone. Additionally, the copper links recent projects by Elderpark HA, who have used copper as a signature material.”

The copper theme will extend to the homes themselves through copper-effect cladding, inclusing a mansard roof to minimise apparent height.

Apparently there was a five year long design development period. Clearly not long enough. I’m not sure if giving them another five years would increase design quality any. Especially of the housing.
