CUBICLE BUILDING, HAWKHEAD

Best Renovation / Conversion Project of the Year
Scottish Property Awards 2017

Design and Build of new residential development consisting of 200 new homes on the site of Hawkhead Hospital in Renfrewshire.

The former Hawkhead Hospital in Renfrewshire has been transformed into a unique and highly desirable residential estate. The Cubicle Building is a 988 m2 A listed building that has retained elements of the original art deco style, which was designed by Scottish Architect Thomas Smith Tait.

The design of the new building elements of the development by Holmes Partnership for Keir Homes incorporates a strong sustainability agenda with the objective of creating a vibrant, mixed community incorporating a high percentage of flats, terraced houses and generous landscaped public spaces. Understanding the significance of the historic site as well as its relationship to Paisley and Glasgow have been central considerations.

DSSR were responsible for the public utility infrastructure planning and building services design and planning.
