Vicarfield Street

This mixed tenure development of 139 new homes is located in a fragmented urban environment. We created a strong sense of place through a mix of tenement flats, town houses and cottage flats.

The homes are energy-efficient, have low carbon emissions and are easy to maintain. We continued Govan's tradition of strong street facades and our design features innovative use of brickwork, feature windows and uncluttered elevations.  

Red brick and metal detailing was used to reinforce the area’s industrial heritage, and the saw-tooth layout of the townhouses echoes the pattern of the bays of the adjacent tenement block.

The development also includes a community garden with an urban orchard. Similarly, the hedges bordering the plots are fruit bushes that will bear edible produce.
