We are delighted to be one of the main sponsors of the Festival of Architecture 2016, a year-long Scotland–wide celebration of Scottish architecture, innovation and design.
Look out for us at Doors Open Day events throughout September in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Ayrshire, during which an impressively diverse array of historical buildings will be throwing open their doors to the public and allowing the opportunity to showcase Scotland’s built environment, architecture and heritage.
Our long legacy of fine Scottish housebuilding makes us proud to be a part of the strong tradition of innovative architecture and design in Scotland.
From our first development in Kings Park, Glasgow in 1925, through a multitude of locations over the decades, from Ayrshire to Newton Mearns, Largs to Dollar, Helensburgh to Edinburgh, we have always sought to combine heritage and tradition with innovation and imagination. Not only have we built thousands of fine homes, but we have been at the forefront of key developments, playing a major role in the Homes for the Future project at Glasgow Green in the 1990s and being one of the partners in the City Legacy consortium which built and sold the 2014 Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village.
(Pictured above is The Broom Estate, Newton Mearns 1936, and below our Castle Grove South development, Newton Mearns 2016.)
Mactaggart & Mickel Homes also took part in the Glasgow Garden Festival in the 1980s, building the ‘Broom’ Milk Bar, and way back in the 1930s we created a stir by building a house and showhome in Glasgow Central Station.
If you would like to find out more about our company’s history and heritage, a detailed timeline is available on our website here.
2016 is our 91st year in business and we are building exciting new developments from Ayrshire through Glasgow and the central belt to Edinburgh…. Our properties range from family homes to townhouses to contemporary apartments – a home for everyone!
