02 _ Sighthill Residential Masterplan, Glasgow

LDA Design is leading the design and delivery of the masterplan and associated public realm for this new 850 home residential neighbourhood to the north of Glasgow city centre. Our masterplan focusses on people – new and existing residents and visitors to Sighthill. It incorporates places that foster community interaction, both at a wider neighbourhood and an intimate street scale. A critical part of our approach was the careful consideration of the build programme to ensure we create a strong sense of place both in the long and in the short term. This meant creating opportunities for temporary uses that can be adopted by the existing community throughout the phased construction.

Working on behalf of Keepmoat Homes, LDA Design initially led the multi-disciplinary design team through the successful ‘Competitive Dialogue’ process with Glasgow City Council to secure Keepmoat’s position as lead developer for the site. LDA Design also worked closely with Glasgow City Council from 2013 on a separate commission to lay the framework of streets and open spaces in advance of Keepmoat’s residential build. Implementation of these ‘advanced infrastructure works’ commenced on site in 2017 with Keepmoat’s residential build programme due to start in 2019. LDA Design’s involvement in both commissions has been critical to ensuring the creation of a seamless vision across the 40 hectare development.
