Revised proposals submitted for Napier University’s Craighouse campus
The Craighouse Partnership has submitted revised proposals for the conversion and redevelopment of its former Craighouse campus into new housing.

The plan is intended to secure the future of seven A-listed buildings on the site; most notably the impressive main New Craig building which will be converted into 44 apartments by Simpson & Brown, whilst preserving historic features.

A number of new build properties will be built within the estate grounds for which Oberlanders architects have prepared a number of indicative designs.

These will be massed and scaled to be subservient to historic buildings and will occupy just 2.4 per cent of the estates 51 acres – the majority of which currently takes the form of car parks, brownfield or currently consented land.
Designs remain purely indicative of the eventual massing at this stage

To correct an error in this article; Simpson & Brown have not designed anything for New Craig. That has been done by Oberlanders Architects. We (S&B) have written a conservstion plan for the site. We have drawn proposals for the 17th Century building on the site which is called Old Craig. The proposal is to make it into a single house.
