Situated in Glasgow’s Partick West End district, the proposals develop an extant masterplan to provide 232 apartments across 3 towers, connected by a landscaped podium. The orientation of the tower elements allows open views through to the river kelvin and Yorkhill park beyond while maximising the direct sunlight for the spaces between.

The towers are articulated with stepped façades on all sides ensuring all apartments have an aspects in more than one direction as well as reducing the visual mass and emphasizing a slender verticality.
The proposals create new routes allowing access to the river and the proposed extension to the Kelvin walkway, as well as creating private residents gardens covering vehicle parking.

Materials reference the traditional masonry of the tenements of the district as well as making a nod to the more recent developments directly adjacent. Landscaping develops from the geometry of the buildings and orientation towards the river and emphasizes the linear nature of the riverside route.
