In Scotland, the word “Tenement” referred to tenency and was used as a generic term for multi-level rented accommodation buildings. Tenements were either adapted or built to provide high density housing for the large number of people coming into towns in the 19th & 20th centuries. The Tenements were generally built no taller than the width of the street they occupied therefore most are 3-5 storied high. Virtually all tenements were constructed out of either red or blond sandstone making them very distinctive in the landscape. A large number of tenements were demolished in the late 20th century due to slum conditions, overcrowding and poor maintenance. New roads and other developments accounted for the demise of many other fine tenements. However, the many remaining tenements in various towns, especially Glasgow have experienced a resurgence in popularity due to their large rooms and solid construction.
This model was designed and sculpted by Stuart Fellowes and was heavily inspired by the earlier model tenement range of Sculptor, Mick Burns. Who created the original concept for ornamental tenement models. Scottish Sculptor David Dannah has also had a hand in the development of the models over the years.
