Castlemilk Stables

Castlemilk regeneration project: restoration of the historic ‘B’ listed Castlemilk House Stables Block, originally designed in 1790. Externally much of the original building has been restored to resemble its original appearance but internally the architects have used an exciting and elegant contemporary design.

Castlemilk Stables – Details

The latest of Castlemilk’s Regeneration project brings to realisation the adaptive restoration of this historic Castlemilk House Stables Block. Designed circa 1790 it is Category B Listed.

Prior to restoration only the outer walls remained.

Externally the building appears as a restored Stables Block following the original building profile of natural stone walls and slated pitched roofs over varying volumes. A more contemporary approach has been employed to this. A new steel and frameless glazed logia provide the primary circulation route to accommodation within the existing stone and new northern volumes focusing on the recessed central courtyard.

A sustainable approach has been adopted to the services philosophy for the building. The systems are designed to minimise the mechanical requirements of the services and optimise their performance throughout the whole life of the building.

The building was completed in July 2007 and handed over by GBPT to the new owners Cassiltoun Housing Association realising the original vision of the community who were intent on saving a derelict 18th century Stables Block in the heart of their area. This is a true community inspired project.
