Design Proposals

Our Brief was to develop eight house types varying in size and affordability. Our solutions offer a modern aesthetic that will age gracefully whilst retaining a 'Clyde Built' robustness. This is achieved through simple, elegant design and intelligent material choice. To meet cost and programme requirements as well as trying to achieve a flexible building capable of expanding and extending in the future, we developed House Platforms on a similar principle to the car industry.

Our platforms give the basic bones of a house which can be modified both in their initial design and throughout their life to offer not just one housetype but many. Through thorough analysis, industry best knowledge, innovative products and partnering, we drove out costs where they return no obvious value.
