New Housing, Lochside

ARPL Architects Ltd

Ayrshire Housing in partnership with South Ayrshire Council have redeveloped three streets of houses in a deprived area of Ayr. The original housing was of poor standard with multiple technical faults and the decision was taken to demolish and rebuild. The new housing provides a range of house types from one to four bedrooms. A third of the houses are specifically designed to allow for future adaptations to counter mobility problems and three houses are for specific disabled tenants. A large proportion of the tenants from the original homes are housed in the new housing, maintaining the existing community ties.
