Hawkins\Brown acted as lead architect, while Architype acted as Passivhaus delivery architect for the first phase of the scheme, which provides 38 homes that are all socially rented to existing estate tenants, enabling the next phase of development to move ahead.
Once complete, the scheme will deliver five hundred energy-efficient, affordable homes, making it the largest Passivhaus development in the UK. Agar Grove is part of the Council’s Community Investment Programme and aims to promote a ‘fabric-first’ approach to increase energy performance. The new homes are built to achieve Passivhaus certification, significantly reducing heating bills by around 90% compared with conventional homes.

New Glasgow College of Arts Building, site of the former Western Infirmary, North West Glasgow, Scotland, UK

This architect office beat a six-strong shortlist to win the Glasgow University campus project.

The University of Glasgow has selected a team led by Hawkins\Brown Architects to design its new College of Arts building.

The £36m building is part of the university’s £1bn campus development programme on the site of the former Western Infirmary. The College of Arts will be on the south of the site, facing Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery, forming a new cultural quarter in the west end of Glasgow.

Over the next year, the design team will develop the new building from concept to detail design. It is envisaged that construction will be completed in 2022.

Vice-principal Roibeard Ó Maolalaigh, head of the College of Arts, said: “The Hawkins\Brown team demonstrated an excellent understanding of our brief to develop a creative thinking space which will act as an inspiration for the arts and humanities. “

Eleanor Magennis, project development manager for the College of Arts project, added: “The new College of Arts will be a gateway building connecting the University with the West End’s Cultural Quarter. Our masterplan calls for a distinctive building of high architectural quality. This will be Hawkins\Brown’s first project in Scotland and they impressed us during the interview process with their experience, enthusiasm and engaging approach.”

Roger Hawkins, founding partner of Hawkins\Brown, said: “Key to our design was the potential exchange of cultural ideas for students, staff and the wider public of Glasgow.”

Multiplex was appointed programme delivery partner for the University of Glasgow’s campus development last year. John Graham won the enabling works packages.

The client and the architects have addressed the somewhat contradictory demands of conservation and commerce. The team has worked with stakeholders English Heritage to find a balance between retaining the Brutalist language while changing public perception of the building. New iridescent coloured panels give the street frontage a changing face while not challenging the original architecture.

Royal Veterinary College Student Village – 29 Jun 2012
Architecturally the buildings embody the concept of sharing in a variety of ways. They thus celebrate not only economy but the spirit of education, which best derives from spontaneous meetings, interaction, and gathering.
The arrangement of the eight dormitory buildings creates a series of shared vistas and shared green commons across the site, spaced out enough so as not to steal light from each other. Every room has east and west aspects. For every group of six dormitory rooms, there is a shared communal room and kitchenette.
