Douglas Street Residential Development

Within the traditional sandstone context of Glasgow’s business district Riach have completed proposals for a small-scale residential development at 121 Douglas Street.

Borrowing from the existing urban grain of the street, the proposals considered scale and massing whilst combining a complimentary palette of materials with full height glazing and glass balustrades onto Douglas Street.

Effectively bounded on three sides by neighbouring gables, the design sought to maximise its frontage by orientating the main living space and bedrooms towards the street with the circulation and service space positioned towards the back of the plan.
