Following on from Grant Murray's detailed Feasibility Study, the project sees the formation of 84 newbuild 2 storey houses & flats, to a challenging brownfield site on the eastern edge of Easterhouse. The site has significant constraints in terms of existing services, challenging ground conditions, historical mine shafts & protected wildlife. The site also boasts incredible aspect, with a Local Nature Reserve & the Seven Loch's Wetland Park defining the eastern boundary. Maximising this aspect & overcoming the site constraints to deliver a scheme that is innovative, aspirational & affordable; has been a highly stimulating challenge.
Long terraces have been utilised to maximise the developable area, while novel 'bin streets'; landscaped semi-private extensions to the rear gardens; have been created on a scale & ambition never before tried in Glasgow. 'Upside down' houses have been developed to maximise the site views, with living areas arranged to the first floor. Large areas of open space, & a sophisticated network of pedestrian paths, completes a development that will completely regenerate this edge of Easterhouse.
