Dundashill

Glasgow, Scotland

Dundashill is located in Port Dundas, a reenergised canalside neighbourhood on the northern edge of Glasgow's city centre. The masterplan envisages the creation of a new residential area defined by a network of pedestrian-friendly streets, paths, and public spaces, including a new civic square, sports and children's play areas, and communal gardens.

Our design principles reflect those of the wider masterplan including improved connectivity, enhancing the green and blue network, celebrating the industrial heritage, encouraging an active community, and promoting low carbon futures.

The homes will provide a choice of architecture and character (edge terraces or community garden facing), which floor you can “live” on, ground or first and traditional or open plan living. All homes will have private outdoor space with a focus on roof terraces and urban yards that promote views, supervision and connection in lieu of fenced private suburban gardens. A cohesive palette of sustainable materials is being explored to ensure continuity between the built form and the landscape.

A first phase of site infrastructure and structural landscaping has been delivered, helping to slowly establish a new residential context.

We are working alongside Ann Nisbet Studio and rankinfraser landscape architecture with the ambition of starting on site autumn 2022.
