MLA win at Scottish Design Awards 2011
20.05.11 Affordable housing project wins at Scottish Design Awards
We are very proud to announce that our housing project at Lower Gilmore Place, Lochrin jointly won the Scottish Design Awards, in the best Affordable Housing Category. This project is one of our first schemes for affordable housing and we were up against stiff competition from other practices more experienced in this field.
The 22 affordable apartment units are contained within two aligned brick clad blocks, which nestle between the recent Edinburgh Quay developments to the north and the existing villas of Gilmore Place. The two blocks are positioned around a private courtyard space which provided the residents with a secluded and tranquil amenity space despite being located in the heart of the city.
The enthusiasm and the high quality delivery by our client, MacTaggart and Mickel was a key factor in the success of this project.
