The first landscape-led housing development in Glasgow, Maryhill North, is designed around water courses, greenspace, and active travel.

erz have partnered Maryhill Housing Association for several years developing and refining the plans for a new neighbourhood that recognises the needs of the climate change and biodiversity emergencies. In 2023, erz were employed to lead delivery of phase 1, supported by Anderson Bell Christie Architects, and Civic Engineers.

The designs work with the natural topography of the site and the landscape design takes precedence and will inform the future architectural design of the buildings.

The management of Glasgow’s generous rainfall has been resolved via a water-management strategy that also enhances civic and domestic spaces through the creation of channels, ponds, and wetlands.
