How the development is expected to look

ARTS venue SWG3 has applied for planning permission to build a studio hub as part of it redevelopment proposals.

A statement among documents submitted to planners explains that a yard area will be turned into a “modern, purpose-built street art facility” featuring a two-storey main studio/workshop building with retail space.

Supporting accommodation will be housed within refurbished shipping containers.

The site at present

There will also be hard and soft landscaping of surrounding outdoor space at the Eastvale Place site in Yorkhill.

The statement continues: “The project aims to do much more than just offer street art facilities; it aims to provide significant regeneration outcomes for the local community using art as a catalyst.

“Yardworks Studio seeks to be more than just a home for graffiti art, aspiring to be an inclusive community facility where people of all ages and abilities can participate in a wide range of street art and group endeavours.”

The proposal follows the success of the annual Yardworks Festival hosted by SWG3 since 2017.

A masterplan for the whole site expands the footprint across newly acquired land to the east and west and maximises use of the current building.

It includes a cluster of workspace units accessed via Sandyford Street; a rooftop restaurant; community garden; and resin-bound gravel walkways connecting access points on Eastvale Place and Sandyford Street.

There will also be nearly 70 car parking spaces.
