About the project

The brief for the project was simply to accommodate as many social housing units onto the site which had been previously occupied by Ness Motors. We were encouraged to come up with a solution which was traditional (pseudo) in form and referred back to the buildings along Telford Street - specifically dormer windows and a reference to red sandstone. Our principal concern was to successfully define a prominent road end and corner and create a place which was clean and simple and would not repeat mistakes of similar sites in Inverness.
