‘The Green’ is a project for local people, an inclusive space to encourage people to socialise within an accessible & playful setting. An environment which facilities organic conversation in order to re-engage & transform the local area. The project is situated in an abandoned victorian glasshouse, disused by the community since 1982. Therefore it was important for the site to become a destination for all the local people of Springburn, increasing interaction and conversation within the neighbourhood.‘The green’ is centred around the game of ‘pétanque’, a form of French lawn bowling, as this aids the aim of the site becoming a hub of observation and interaction.
Facade - approach to The Green
Situated in the centre of Springburn park. -the current building shell meant that it was difficult for the user to navigate the site on arrival. Therefore I felt a new clear entrance was necessary, one which is in-keeping with the buildings history.
