jmarchitects Glasgow studio laid down tools Friday afternoon to take an office visit to the recently completed Bothy and Tùr at Cuningar Loop.
The Cuningar Loop Forestry Park is a transformational green space project at the heart of the Clyde Gateway, providing approximately 37 acres of unique urban woodland with river frontage and activity spaces, forming the largest urban park in South Lanarkshire.
The Bothy will provide a permanent base for groups and activities throughout the park to encourage a broader range of users and engagement with local communities. Sensitivity to the natural environment was a critical factor in the design development. The use of robust raw materials connected to the local environment aids in bedding the structures into their context, developing an architecture that relates to place and purpose in equal measure.
The Tùr has been sited at one of the park’s highest points, allowing it to act as a marker, drawing the public into the park and encouraging exploration. Its elevated position above the treeline provides expansive views of the city skyline. Bridging the unremediated land and the large meadow, this previously inaccessible area of the park can now be enjoyed by the public in a new way.
The trip was concluded with a visit to West Brewery.
We have also recently received the completed professional photographs which show off how beautiful the Bothy and Tùr is!
