Vesalius Street

Housing, Sustainable Architecture, Work & Retail

This new tenement of 19 flats and eight townhouses reclaims the traditional high street along Shettleston Road, a lively artery in the east end of Glasgow. We relocated the existing bank and inserted three new shop units to reactivate the street front.

Homes are warm, healthy and enable flexible living. The townhouses are laid out in two short terraces on bordering side streets and reflect the scale of neighbouring buildings. The flats have large, south-facing windows. We used highly insulated timber frame structure clad in locally-produced brick and Scottish larch boarding.
