The residential development of 50 units for New Gorbals Housing Association provides a rich mix of accommodation types including ground floor independently accessed maisonettes with private gardens and one and two bedroom flatted units for rent along with carparking and amenity space.

The form of the building responds to two distinct conditions with a restrained traditional ‘whole in the wall’ facade addressing the street punctuated by two large scale openings identifying the common circulation areas and to the new circus where a pavilion turns the corner and addresses the new park .

The distinctive roof highlights the threshold to the park and provides a unity to the composition and a clear Identity to the whole .
