The design includes 37 socially rented houses that surround a landscaped central square and shared surface, 6 townhouses that line Neilston Road and a courtyard building, which houses 10 supported flats for young adults as well as a staff base. FBN Architects collaborated with Ian White Associates on the Landscape Design.

FBN Architects Quote

Andrew McEwan of FBN Architects says “Our proposals are driven by the desire to create a sustainable residential community of distinct character & lasting quality. The defining character of the proposal is a new informal green heart which allows the architecture to form a backdrop to this new recreational space. The architectural language combines a contemporary aesthetic, a nod to local built forms and a response to modern living patterns. Our view is that sustainability is the capacity to endure. Be it a lasting relationship with a friendly neighbour or the enduring quality of your home. We want to encourage both. Our aim is to reduce the burden of modern life by providing efficient, contemporary houses by following our simple manifesto for achievable sustainable housing. Our intention is that this scheme will foster a sense of community between residents and become a place where people gossip in doorways, children scamper across parkland and where someone can sit down and thumb through a magazine.”

Loretto Housing Association

Rona Anderson, New Initiatives Manager with Loretto says “Loretto are delighted to be working with FBN Architects on the Neilston Road project and offer our congratulations on the award of Planning Permission. FBN have produced a very modern and innovative solution to meet a challenging brief, and have worked hard to produce an excellent example of sustainable lowcarbon housing at an affordable cost to the Association. We are looking forward to the construction stage and the Association is already receiving enquiries from local residents about when the development will be available for let.”
