28 flats on the cards for East Kilbride town centre

Norr Architects with Carmichael Homes and Interiors have come forward with plans for 28 flats on the site of a disused garage at West Mains Road, East Kilbride, on the fringe of the town centre.

The 0.2ha site will play host to a timber-framed block faced in brick and smooth cladding panels to form an urban edge to the road, with on-site parking for 40 vehicles allocated toward the rear.

In a planning statement, the practice wrote: “Windows to the street elevations have been grouped vertically with a toning brick reinforcing verticality and lower fanlights provide for views while seated in living rooms and dining areas. Stair cores are expressed with full height fenestration and Paris balcony details again reinforcing verticality.
 
“A recessed detail at the ground floor entry point provides shelter at the main entrances. The living rooms to the corner flats on Glebe Crescent and Glebe Street benefit from having external balconies at first second and third floors.”
 
The site is a five-minute walk from East Kilbride train station and will be built to a density of 140 dwellings per hectare.

OK, the context may not be the most inspiring, but for goodness sake, it surely deserves better than this -. Must do better, Norr.
