The Old Printworks and The New Gorbals Health & Care Centre have been shortlisted!
Two of our projects have been shortlisted for the 2019 Brick Awards!
The Old Printworks Student Accommodation development in Edinburgh has been shortlisted in the Large Housing Development category and The New Gorbals Health & Care Centre has been shortlisted in the Urban Regeneration category.
The Old Printworks was designed by jmarchitects and delivered by Ogilvie Construction for Unite and Crosslane Student Developments. The Wienerberger Marziale brick with colour matched mortar was selected for its natural light buff appearance, gentle variation in tone and good texture. The simple palette of the singular brick choice was also taken from the buildings into the landscape walls to create a pleasing holistic environment for the students.
The New Gorbals Health & Care Centre was designed by jmarchitects and delivered by Morgan Sindall Construction for hubWest and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The building is predominately constructed in Weinerberger Pagus Grey/Black Multi facing brick in a stretcher bond with deeply revealed openings to give it a robust and civic presence. The highly textural and dark toned brick connects the building to Glasgow’s historic fabric and to the wider redevelopment of New Gorbals and Laurieston. It provides a subtle yet animated façade which changes with the light during the course of the day. The brickwork is complimented by contrasting precast details that define large openings and Western Red Cedar louvres to windows which add a warmth to the elevations.
