Mondriaan is the first phase of a regeneration project in Ruchill, Glasgow. The site lies alongside the Forth and Clyde Canal and the design of the new community focuses on the waterfront, with townhouses and cottage flats overlooking the water. The main roads enclosing the site are lined with four storey flatted blocks providing protection from the roads and creating a linear courtyard with attractive landscaping between the two built forms.
The flatted blocks have balconies facing south towards the Canal and views between the townhouses to the water. The south elevations have multi-coloured panels in a curtain wall system set out in the “Neo-plastic” style of the Dutch painter Mondriaan, giving the name to the development. The townhouses facing the Canal are elevated, each with a different style, breaking up the terrace visually into individual units.
The development provides 176 flats and townhouses with a variety of accommodation sizes.
