Up-and-coming Scottish practice McGinlay Bell has won approval for a new £600,000 family home in Bearsden, north of Glasgow
The 250m² four-bedroom home in Ellergreen Road will sit between two existing house in a ‘leafy suburban setting, bound by an edge of mature scots pine trees’.
According to the firm, the scheme has been conceived as a ‘deconstructed brick enclosure that grounds the building to its long narrow site’.
The practice added: ‘The concept of an enclosure has been opened up to insert a timber and glass pavilion that sits inside to create a series of sheltered courtyards and garden spaces that offer light into the depths of the internal house plan.
‘The courtyards and garden spaces are composed by a glass, timber and steel verandah which offers a common point of orientation within the house and a sense of mediation between the inside and out.’
The project is expected to start on site in May and complete before the end of the year.
