Friary Court Glasgow, Crown Street housing in the Gorbals

Location: southeast part of Crown Street Housing, Gorbals, south of Glasgow city centre

In 1993 Page\Park Architects became involved in the conversion of the grade 1 listed St Francis Church and Friary into a community centre and sheltered housing. In 1997 when the Crown St Regeneration Project were deciding on development teams for phases of the Queen Elizabeth Square masterplan, they gave Page\Park the opportunity to extend their work at St Francis Church to the ‘phase D’ site immediately adjacent.

This property development was to incorporate private housing, a private outdoor space for the community centre and a public square along Cumbernauld Street. The project was subsequently named ‘Friary Court’.
