Laurieston Transformational Area

Page\Park Architects

Designing these affordable-rent homes in a layout of streets and mews settings in Laurieston2builds on the urban character of Glasgow, comprising clearly-defined blocks to reinforce the grid of the city. The development follows contemporary tenement form, with a variety of housing types – apartments, maisonettes and terraces – exploiting the rich possibilities of corners, the southern aspect and courtyard environments.

Blocks fronting Margaret Street consist of a pair of apartment blocks at four and five stories, accessed via common stairwells and following the traditional ‘close’ model. Along Margaret Street, the bay window, typical of many Glasgow residential blocks has been replaced with balconies ‘excavated’ into the wall.
