Laurieston Glasgow

LocationLaurieston, Glasgow

ClientNew Gorbals Housing Association

StatusCompleted 2015

Social housing regeneration project that embraced high quality design, good living and accessible for all, whilst creating a new world class city quarter in Glasgow.

Laurieston is a multi-award winning development, and a reinterpretation of the Glasgow tenement.

It builds on the urban character of Glasgow with clearly defined blocks reinforcing the grid-like quality of the city, expressed in the superb Architecture designed by Page\Park and Elder and Cannon Architects.

A variety of housing types – apartments, maisonettes and terraced houses – exploiting the rich possibilities of corners, southern aspect and courtyard environments. The well defined, robust streetscape was key to creating a landmark for the future development of the Laurieston area.

Laurieston is both a superb development and an example of fantastic placemaking. It reinforces the grid of Glasgow and helps to remake Laurieston as a highly attractive place to live and to visit: a triumphant piece of urban regeneration.
