Wauchope Square Phase 7

Elder and Cannon Architects

The site is located adjacent to our Niddrie Mills primary school and creates a new mews-type street characterised by a shared surface where the new housing engages with the life of the school and enriches the newly forming community and forms a cohesive whole connecting with the existing Niddrie Mains estate. A variety of house-types are explored, varying from detached 2. storey house units through to the reinterpretation of the traditional 4-in-a-block and terraced units. Interesting forms and scales are explored internally to provide a variety of increased ceiling heights, including 1. storey and 2 storey high volumes.
