Back to projects

Underlying our concept was a desire to screen the housing from the road and maximise views, especially south to Edinburgh Castle. The concept was a linear park that connects all 84 units. Either side of this space are 5 apartment blocks, and to the quieter side, 12 townhouses. Circulation is routed through this central space. The linear park – open at both ends – maximises key long-distance views.
