Design

Designed with feedback from the City of Stirling and three expert Design Assessment Panels, the masterplan for the new community on Harborne Street includes:

  • A London Mews inspired road network and architectural style
  • 102 two, three and four-bedroom townhouses designed for a range of life stages
  • One and two garage designs, with ample visitor parking
  • Architect designed homes with a range of facades for excellent street appeal
  • Around 60% of homes are designed to achieve Liveable Housing Design Guidelines (silver) providing accessible housing and aging in place
  • A new standard in townhouse sustainability with 8 star (NatHERS) homes, on site electricity generation, and excellent solar orientation
  • A shared open area including a covered multipurpose space, work zone and children play area, bike maintenance and dog wash
  • Pedestrian path between Harborne Street and Glendalough Open Space improving access to both
  • Each home is provided with at least one car bay, with the majority (74%) of the townhouses having two car bays
  • An easy 500m walk to Glendalough Train Station
  • Direct pedestrian access to the Glendalough Open Space, Herdsman Lake and Lake Monger
  • Excellent safety with traffic calming and passive surveillance in all areas

Masterplan

Glendalough Townhouses

Entry Precinct

The entry from Harborne Street includes an area of communal park space. This area will be quite formal in its design as it is the main pedestrian and car entry. Accompanied by low walls, fruiting trees, hedging plants and edible species. These market garden inspired species are purposely set at the eastern end furthest away from the natural lake system to the west. The existing Cape Lilac tree is proposed to be retained.

Design elements include:

  • Existing mature tree retained
  • Variety of road paving and surface treatments reducing road speed in shared zone
  • Seating area set under shady trees and between low formal walls and entry sign

Central Communal Open Space

The central communal open space caters for a range of uses that are intimate, comfortable, and protected from the elements. This space will encourage community connection through sharing meals and ideas and provide a safe break out zone for residents living in town houses.

It includes water, GPOs, and a USB point to enable a breakout space for residents during a lock down or whilst working from home. A BBQ and a long table underneath a pergola are inspired by outdoor kitchens with a residents orchard and herb garden in recognition of the area’s history as a market garden.

A bike hub in one corner provides a small amount of space and equipment to work on bikes, encouraging active transport and allowing people to connect over bicycle maintenance.

A little free library created in a way to promote the sharing of books and providing a reason for people to linger.

Design elements include:

  • Visitor car parking
  • Shady trees and a herb Garden
  • Central public art element
  • Picnic setting and BBQ under shade
  • Open grass seating area
  • Soft lighting for night use
  • Nature play and picnic setting
  • Community noticeboard
  • Road paving to indicate communal space and reduced speed area

Open Space Link

This pedestrian link is an easy and safe way to move from Peet Glendalough to the broader open space network of paths and parks surrounding Herdsman Lake.

It has soft lighting and feels green with native plants that are endemic to the wetlands which aims to bring the park into the community. The walkway will share elements of the other two communal spaces via colour scheme, paving and artwork but is intended to be more natural in character.

A small breakout space at the end of the shared pathway acts as a place to sit and watch the sun set and meet neighbours.

Design elements include:

  • Seating set within planting and paving areas
  • Pedestrian path is clear and safe and lit with sift lighting at night
  • Road paving to indicate communal space and reduced speed area
  • Gate control and bollard lighting set to park interface
