Hill Street Housing, Garnethill, Glasgow

Austin-Smith: Lord LLP

This housing proposal for a high profile site in central Glasgow was won in a two stage design competition organised by the Housing Association in conjunction with the RIAS.

The scheme provides a total of 60 units (20 social housing, 40 private for sale) in five 4 to 7 storey blocks, with a wide variety of accommodation ranging from 1 to 4 bedroom flats many of which are designed for barrier-free access. The scheme provides a very high density of affordable flats in the centre of the city.

The site commands superb views across the city and the site layout and flat plans maximise opportunities to enjoy the panorama.
