Refurbishment & Extension
A housing development close to Glasgow’s city centre is combining traditional building skills with modern technology to stunning effect. The Barony Gate development in the Anniesland district is a mixed housing project by developers Mactaggart & Mickel.
In the case of Barony Gate, the developers chose a special lightweight render in a bright shade of blue for a number of the panels. The strongly contrasting panels provide a harmonious and visually satisfying continuity throughout the development. Fully appropriate to the urban environment they bring a sense of sophistication and individuality to each of the buildings. The result is a housing project of considerable architectural merit in a part of Glasgow that is seen as one of the city’s liveliest and most desirable places to live.
