Design Awards 2014
North Glasgow House
Winner: Design Award
Ledcameroch Crescent, located in the Conservation Area of the northerly Glasgow suburb of Bearsden, consists of a number of Victorian villas and mansions on a gently-sloping arc. Our clients, who had lived there for 19 years, required additional accommodation to suit their growing family of three boys.
The project involved careful internal reconfiguration and the addition of a single wing positioned perpendicular to the main house on the western side. This solution gave the best internal arrangement and also generated three distinctive external spaces of individual character.
Within the existing house, a new double height rooflit dining space creates an important architectural and social centre of gravity in what is a relaxed sequence of kitchen/dining/family snug/formal sitting room. The new extension seamlessly brings new and old together downstairs and creates a suite of bedrooms and bathroom upstairs. The double height space operates as the key point of orientation for both levels.
