Residential Masterplan, South Queensferry
This project is an indicative masterplan for housing on the site of a now disused industrial site on the outskirts of South Queensferry. The masterplan provides for a range of residential accommodation (including affordable units), commercial uses and employment opportunities, with strong footpath links through the site to surrounding areas, a strong landscape structure of formal and informal spaces and high quality public realm and urban form.
At the core of the design proposal is the desire to create a rich environment which offers a variety of spatial experiences and encourages a vibrant urban realm. The masterplan, informed by a thorough Public Consultation, utilises a variety of spaces to help to create a clear and structured masterplan. An obvious hierarchy of both green spaces and streets acts as a tool for spatial organisation of neighbourhoods and masterplan zones.
