The block is split at a point determined by a connection between the bus stop and the existing church. This creates a well supervised access point into the heart of the Pollokshaws community.

Every dwelling is afforded with east/ west orientation to receive sunlight in the morning and the evening.

All ground floor homes have gardens however splitting the 47 homes into two smaller blocks allows us to create a number of homes with larger gardens with direct access, that are being tailored to specific needs of existing local residents.
