It occupies an elevated position and is flanked westward by the world famous Coats Memorial Church (planning permission granted for new event space) and eastward by the Paisley Museum and Art Gallery which is soon to undergo a £42 million redevelopment programme.
It sits directly across the High Street from the main entrance to the University of West of Scotland Paisley Campus.
The proposed development consists of two purpose-built student accommodation buildings, each housing a series of en-suite and accessible en-suite rooms on the upper floors. Communal spaces serving the building are offered at ground floor level, encouraging residents to gather and socialise whilst efficiently focusing the provision of services.
The existing Thomas Abercrombie building is retained and incorporated into the scheme, evolving to accommodate a mix of service and communal spaces on the lower levels whilst reconfiguring the upper levels to offer bespoke studio apartments.
The existing drill hall and side chapel buildings are removed to accommodate the scheme, allowing the site to breathe and resulting in the provision of open courtyards and external breakout spaces. An intimate campus atmosphere is created by a site which is enclosed by mature trees, offering both privacy and security to residents.
