CATHAY STREET PHASE II, MILTON
DO-Architecture on behalf of GHA/Wheatley Group have submitted planning permission for the erection of a 49-unit residential development, comprised of houses and cottage flats, in Milton, North Glasgow as a second phase to our Cathay Street project.
Based on the Phase I development Cathay Street Phase II aims to further enhance Scaraway Street and Cathay Street using updated house typologies within a similar arrangement suited to the particular site and adjacent context. A strong streetscape along Scaraway Street is introduced with cottage flat bookends while a pedestrianised green space splitting the blocks encourages foot traffic through the site with future phases in mind.
Terraces to the north of the site are arranged in pairs with a North South axis. This pairing ensures improved supervision of the spaces that are now “frontage” which provides safe and secure sunny spaces for all residents. The positioning of these terraces also offers east-west orientation for the occupants in these homes, more favourable for morning and evening light and reducing the prevalence or poorly sunlight north facing outside space
All parking for the development is located within the proposed rear courtyard space, off an adopted road, with no spaces being removed or reallocated from Scaraway Street.
