The setting for this four-bedroomed house is a south-facing sloping site with long views towards the Campsie Fells and a tree-fringed northern backdrop. Adjacent buildings are Victorian stone houses (partly rendered) or 30 year old brick and render developer’s houses. The site overlooks the cottage identified as the birth place of Alexander Thompson. The new house aligns itself with the neighbouring building line and overall height. It is arranged on 3 levels (conceived as 2 storeys on a plinth) to minimise cut and fill on the site. A partly covered terrace both signals the new entrance route on the eastern side and provides some privacy from the neighbouring property.
