This redevelopment provides 141 new- build houses and flats on a mostly vacant site to create new urban blocks that respond to the scale of existing flats. The design team wanted to provide a strong identity for the new neighbourhood. They chose to express this through careful selection of materials and the creation of strong, built forms, based on early Scottish styles such as crow-stepped gables and rectilinear blocks.
The contemporary response has been to use the roof pitches and corners to provide interest and variety along the streets. It also addresses the challenges set by the level changes across the site.
