Brabloch Park, Paisley
Building in southwest Glasgow, Scotland – design by Elder & Cannon, Architects
Brabloch Park Paisley
Date built: 2007
Designer: Elder & Cannon Architects
Brabloch Park is situated off Renfrew Road, the main northern arterial route into Paisley.
Text from Elder & Cannon Architects:
The site as found comprised of a plain Victorian villa set in a mature wooded grounds.
The programme was for a residential development carefully placed between and around the two major tree belts and behind an existing mature hedge.
The development comprises 78 apartments with 5 blocks of varying scales and typologies that respond to the unique landscaped setting and surrounding context.
Large scale elements sit on diagonally opposite corners. One to the rear overlooking the entranceway, and the other at the main public junction with views south over Paisley. Thinner and lower blocks stretch along the quieter Netherhill Road and end in an open pend forming the entrance to the site.
A simple palette of materials was used with brick enlivened by areas of zinc cladding on the more public faces and timber or render on the sheltered elevations, detailed to echo the vertical rhythm of the tree line.
