Strathclyde Country Park

Strathclyde Country Park sits at the heart of Lanarkshire, a green space connecting the communities of Motherwell, Bellshill, Hamilton and Bothwell.

As the park nears its 50th anniversary it is looking to think big and oversee the design of a sustainable, carbon-neutral park. Lateral North and Collective Architecture were commissioned to develop a masterplan for the park where this vision was developed with a focus on local communities and organisations aspirations.

A Country Park of the Future focuses around four flagship projects and a series of core proposals which establishes Strathclyde Country Park as a destination for locals and international visitors, providing unique experiences throughout the park.

The Making of Ferguslie

Ferguslie Park in Paisley topped the list for the most deprived community in Scotland in 2016. 

Lateral North worked with Collective Architecture and Create to create a vision of Ferguslie driven by innovative and maker focussed community workshops. The design team invited the community to join in creative thinking sessions using board games, interactive maps and artists sessions to bring the community together and gather aspirations for the area going forward.

The vision for Ferguslie is taking shape, with a masterplan outlining options for future housing with much needed access to quality green space, amenities and integrated transport links.  Ferguslie has a bright future looking forward.

Building Paisley

Commissioned by Renfrewshire Council, Building Paisley is a four year project which is being delivered between 2018 and 2021, each year engaging with a different primary school within Paisley to educate, inspire and engage students in architecture, design and the history of their home.

The project is split into five key sessions: Mapping, Surveying, Drawing, Augmenting and Modelling Paisley. Over the course of these five sessions the students are introduced to the discipline of architecture and explore how it isn’t all about door schedules and house extensions.
