The Challenge:

Creating a new community around a development that retains its original Art Deco style, originally delivered by world-famous Scottish architect, Thomas Smith Tait in the early 1930s. The Cubicle Building was the focial point of the development and it was imperative that the project reflected its setting in the sought-after Southern Quarter of Paisley, a beautiful and traditional Scottish town.

The Solution:

The completed Hawkhead Village offers over 300 new homes of three, four and five-bedrooms. This includes new builds along with carefully refurbished properties, which are being created within several stunning original buildings.

The Impact:

Hawkhead Village’s show home, Arrochar, won Show Home of the Year in the Scottish Home Awards 2015. The village was also a finalist in the Scottish Home Awards 2016. The Cubicle Building, which forms a key part of the landmark Hawkhead Village development on the site of the former Hawkhead Hospital, won the Best Renovation/Conversion category in The Herald Property Awards for Scotland 2017.

" This award, the best renovation/conversion at The Herald Property Awards for Scotland, is a fantastic accolade and achievement. The Cubicle Building, originally designed by the architect Thomas Tait in the early 1930s, has always been the focal point of this historic development and it is great to see this Art Deco themed building given a new lease of life.
