Mid-market Milton homes to form a courtyard gateway
July 6 2021
Glasgow Housing Association is heading proposals to create 48 homes for mid-market rent at Ashgill Road, Milton.
Rising on the site of the organisations own local office the brownfield build will rise at the junction with Colston Road. Collective Architecture has been brought on board to design the project, conceiving a gateway concept of three similar blocks with attached cycle and bin stores enclosed by sheltering brick boundary walls.
Outlining the proposed design the architects wrote: "The final proposed design capitalises on the site location and prominence creating a strong key gateway. The building position and sheltering walls define and protect a series of amenity and private garden spaces and the site is permeable with a series of linked attractive safe spaces."
The staggered blocks will be set back from an established tree line to form a small amenity space with all blocks formed from a mix of blonde and grey brick under terracotta roof tiles.
