Noah Developments are to follow up their delivery of six townhouses at Partickhill with proposals to build 40 flats and public open space at Mount Florida Bowling Club following its closure.
A design team comprising jmarchitects, RankinFraser and Blyth & Blyth has been brought on board with plans to create lower duplex apartments with flats stacked above in two blocks fronting Carmunnock Road behind an existing landscaped embankment, leaving a crescent of public open space to the rear.
In their design statement the architects observed: “Each building is designed ‘in the round’ with no clear hierarchy given to any one elevation due to the unique site context in which the buildings are located.
“Large fixed windows flood the internal spaces with light while slimmer opening windows are served by fixed glazed balustrades which function as a minimalistic protective barrier whilst the windows are in operation.”
Each block will be finished in weathered light grey/cream brick with deep vertical stack bond/soldier course bands and projecting balconies enlivening each elevation.
