About the project
Client: Glasgow Housing Association
Form of contract: Design & Build
Project value: £4.5m
Completed in October 2018, the Burnmouth Road development provides 43 new build dwellings in a range of house types, including two-and three-bed family houses & two bed cottage flats; all achieving Silver Aspects 1 and 2.
Built on a narrow brownfield site within Glasgow’s eastern district of Barlanark, the project embraces the principles of Designing Streets to deliver a positive and character-rich environment for residents; benefitting from high levels of connectivity to the established residential areas adjacent.
A consistent material palette of blonde brick and dark zinc standing seam cladding has been adopted throughout the development, complemented by extensive soft landscaping (incorporating new mature street trees and shrub planted features) including informal amenity space within the centre of the site for communal use.
