Holmes Miller has submitted a Planning Application on behalf of Vaga Developments Limited for the restoration and adaptation of the old Lenzie Primary School building on Kirkintilloch Road, providing 20 flats specifically designed to appeal to the downsizing market in the town.
The existing building heights have been exploited to create two storey partial maisonettes over the two existing levels in the restored school, with the main living rooms retained as double height spaces. The existing double height atrium space with extensive rooflight is to be retained and restored to provide communal access to the renovated flats. A new extension provides nine additional flats, with full height glazing to all rooms, through a mix of French balustrades and balconies.
The extension is to be finished in a mix of natural stone to the main frontage and facing brick to the side and rear elevations, with high quality composite windows throughout.
