Scottish students in community design project

Glasgow design group Stand and regeneration firm Ballyconnelly Group have teamed up with two Inverclyde schools to work on a community design project.

The Community Space Programme design brief invites 28 students from Notre Dame and St Columba’s high schools to consider their ideal living environment. Considerations of safety, sociability and a pleasant environment top the agenda.

Stand creative director Stuart Gilmour says, ‘I have encouraged them to look all around for design ideas, from their direct living environment to European architecture. I have also opened their minds to the idea of what they’d like from public space in a recreational sense.’

Ballyconnelly and Gilmour will spend three-and-a-half days with each school over a three-week period, offering the students design, arts and architecture advice.

Stand has previously worked with young people on design projects for Clydebank Rebuilt and Loretto Housing Association.
