Townhouse living comes to Maryhill Locks
October 22 2019
Bigg Regeneration has completed the fourth phase of its Maryhill Locks masterplan with the release of 33 townhouses on Lochgilp Street.
The mix of three and four-bedroom terraced homes have been built by CCG to designs by jmarchitects where the Forth & Clyde canal meets the River Kelvin and will form a new urban block centred on a ‘hidden garden’ upon completion of phase 3 homes.
In a statement the architects wrote: “The buildings are arranged in a regular terrace which re-establishes the street edge, whilst breaking the terrace into four separate buildings and orientating these to be parallel to the Phase 3 development gives the appearance of a stepped building line, breaking up the monolithic quality of the block and ensuring that the building form is animated and interesting rather than solid.
“To ensure light is maintained to each elevation of the proposed development, the steep topography of the site is managed by the introduction of a retaining wall offset from the back elevation of the blocks, allowing for a light well to be created which is accessible as a small terrace space at ground floor. Access is maintained to the back gardens from the first floor by way of a link bridge over the light well.”
Finished predominantly in brick the properties are scaled to maximise river views with private terraces set back from the building line making the most of its setting.
