Housing need addressed by affordable Falkirk apartments
November 17 2020
Plans for 23 apartments for social rent on brownfield land at King Street, Falkirk, have been filed by Covell Matthews Architects on behalf of G&N Homes.
Located just beyond the town centre the build would rise on the corner of Thornhill Road, splitting accommodation between twin three-storey blocks connected by a landscaped parking court.
In a statement of intent, the architect wrote: "The corner of King Street and Thornhill Road has been identified as an opportunity to create architectural focus and strengthen the corner within the urban realm. Corner windows on each floor sit in the prominent position maximising views from inside as well as creating interest externally.
"A rusty red timber effect cladding has been proposed to surround the corner windows, accentuating it further. The timber effect cladding is also utilised throughout each building to highlight the main entrances and add texture to some of the less fenestrated facades."
Finished primarily in white render and contrasting dark brick the properties will be owned and managed by Link and Paragon Housing Association's.
