Queens Gate

Elder and Cannon Architects

The project comprises 40 affordable homes to rent and is arranged in five closes and over 4 storeys. The curved form follows the street profile echoing the sweep of the railway that had earlier shaped the site and giving an aspect south and west towards the River Clyde. A formal street elevation uses repetitive red brick panels and continuous stringer bands of portland cast stone that frame large recessed balconies. These incorporate sliding and folding glazed screens that allow the tenants to transform them into year round winter gardens and sunspaces.
