Residential Development, Coburg Street, Leith, Edinburgh

Fouin + Bell Architects Ltd

Fouin + Bell acted as Architects and Lead Consultants on the Award winning scheme. This new build project for Port of Leith Housing Association of 60 flats from three stair cores with semi-basement parking was two thirds social rent and the remainder shared ownership. The site was extremely constrained with a scheduled burial ground and listed building on opposite boundaries. The project was delivered under a 'design and build' contract with protracted planning approval process due to the sensitive nature of the site. Awards: Scottish Home Awards 2011 - Small Affordable Housing Development of the Year - Highly Commended.
