Gracemount Housing

Smith Scott Mullan Associates

This housing project provides new 1, 2 and 3-bed houses within a mix of 3 and 4-storey flats, 3-storey colony-type and 2-storey terraced houses. Proposals include the detailed design of the streets and infrastructure serving both the 99 new affordable houses as well as the 116 houses for sale. Predominantly based around a central east-west street providing visual links to the listed Gracemount House, the design employs Homezone principles to create a high quality shared surface streetscape. Hard and soft landscaping features control vehicle speeds creating a safe and welcoming environment. He project has achieved a BREEAM excellent rating.
