Commonwealth Games Athletes' Village Masterplan

Dalmarnock, Glasgow

The masterplan of this regeneration process was the development of 700 new homes, a 120 bedroom care home and generous public open spaces within a site area of 32 hectares. At the forefront of the Dalmarnock Commonwealth Games Village was ultimately the future and legacy of the area. The project proved an unparalleled exercise in not only developing exemplar residential buildings, but contributing to Glasgow’s East End image, paving the way for a post industrial impoverished area to transform into an attractive environment to both live and locate new business.

From the outset, we promoted the Village as an exemplar of sustainable design, in turn the design was awarded 'Scotland’s most Sustainable Development 2014’.
