First homes emerge at Jordanhill Park

First homes emerge at Jordanhill Park

CALA Homes have unveiled their first show homes at Jordanhill Park, a development of 400 new homes within and around the B-listed David Stow building in the city’s west end.

Designed by 7N Architects with interiors specialists Envision the development will sit within a parkland setting with full completion set for 2024.

Eileen Kesson of Envision said: “We can only showcase one palette within the show apartment, but buyers do have the choice of two neutrals, in white and grey, and two slightly darker tones for a sharper look, for the opportunity to select something that suits their taste and personality. Each one comes with carefully-curated interior ‘ingredients’ to guarantee coordination throughout – leaving buyers free to add the fun pieces, from brand new furniture to cherished items – that reflect their style.

“The show apartment has been furnished with some stunning pieces, from Italian designer lighting to statement coffee tables and rich fabrics, which we think will provide a real source of inspiration and help homebuyers visualise themselves living within the space.”

A total of 19 former Strathclyde University buildings including the Sir Henry Wood building have been demolished to make way for the development.

Oh. My. Word. That top floor - did they mistakenly put the site accommodation on top of the block? Horrendous.

#1 That's what "following the latest London design trends" is, dear. What an interior mess. Is this space to for humans? So claustrophobic...

"Homes will follow the latest London design trends"...
Did they not realise the homes are in Glasgow?

Because that's obviously a great thing...

An abortion built on public land after closed doors negotiation. The University and council should be held to account . A manilla envelope snowstorm

That's no place to put your site hut. Sure it's convenient, but will it not your prospective buyers off? It's right on top of the show home FFS.

Get it craned back into the contractors compound next to the toilets.

A strange lurid fascination with London - why not design and build something that is of its place?... is it that Cala think we have no positive references. I think the top floor is a complete disaster and they should be looking to replace the cladding with something that does not look like a budget industrial shed - something they must be fond of down south?...

That's it the architecture schools have utterly failed us.
Its an inarticulate box with an afterthought on top.
GCC planners have totally failed us.
This is just about one of the worst designs I have yet seen on Urban Realm. Trully dreadful.

You should see what it looks like now as well. Efflorescence has covered the entire buildings and it looks absolutely awful. I am disappointed with 7N architects as they have made brilliant buildings in the past, but they have ruined this site. This site was arguably Glasgow's best - unfortunately another destroyed by CALA.
