Ballater St / McNeil St. Gorbals, Glasgow
This is a residential redevelopment scheme in Glasgow. Ballater Street as a main road into and out of the city provides the links to other districts and centres. The street represents the organising force present within all urban matrixes, it is the democratic public artery that promotes socialibility and community. The recognition of its qualities and the need to respect and reinforce them are fundamental to all city developments
The development aimed to create a community and centre reaching back to the old but a new exemplar of the new Gorbals, to have a social mix and break down the separation of public / private spaces, in order to achieve the integration of the site within the neighbourhood and ultimately the city.
