Dalmarnock rejuvenation continues with plans for a further 41 homes
April 27 2022
Mast Architects have teamed up with Thenue Housing Association to deliver 41 homes for social rent in Dalmarnock, Glasgow.
Occupying a former playing field at Connal Street off Springfield Road the plan calls for a mix of apartments, wheelchair accessible homes and homes all built to housing for varying needs standards.
Joining a spate of housing development in the area following the success of the Athlete's Village the latest addition aims to build out an important street junction with a large flatted block positioned at the junction with Sunnybank Street, anchoring a pedestrian link to the Cuningar Loop Park.
In their design statement, Mast wrote: "The proposed design has been developed within the wider context, in order to reference both the future planned developments, but also the high landmarks surrounding the development site, such as the multi-storey development to Dalmarnock Road and the flatted blocks flanking the Cuningar Loop footbridge."
Finished in a variety of buff, cream and dark facing brick the homes have been designed to slot into the evolving urban context.
Long a byword for post-industrial decline Dalmarnock is fast becoming a focus for residential development
