Client: Haus Collective
The Pacific Quay landscape is another fantastic design that the OOBE team have delivered as part of a masterplan for the development.
The masterplan is a collaborative venture which also involves Scottish Enterprise, architects HAUS Collective, Glasgow City Council Planning Department, Turley Planning Consultants, Dougall Baillie Associates and Wireframe Immersive.
The aim of the development is to create a community of unique character which reflects the quality and heritage of its setting.
Keeping the historic context of the site
We have used dynamic forms in the Park Hill landscape and a material palette that responds to the historic context of the site; the shipyards. Desire lines are used across the site to portray the historic relevance. There is a clear central space, creating a flexible core for a range of events including street activities, local market stalls and community performances.
The Clyde Walkway currently provides a clear pedestrian and cycle route to the site and defines a key point of arrival to the proposed development.
We have extended this connection through the site by providing a central route site towards Festival Park. This space, where the existing and proposed paths will meet, will create a sense of arrive and will provide a meeting and gathering point for passers-by, visitors and residents.
