Long running Edinburgh residential infill project back on the cards
Studio DuB Architects have brought forward plans to build a trio of duplex and single level flats on vacant ground at Inglis Green Gait, Edinburgh.

Located adjacent to a railway embankment the four storey infill will be faced in timber cladding with glass and galvanized steel balustrades under a roof with integrated photovoltaic panels.

Undercroft parking for three cars will be provided at ground level with the rear of the plot replanted with a turfed communal amenity space.

Outlining the plans the architect said: “The building is of a contemporary design using modern materials.  Interest is held by the design in its fenestration patterns, setbacks and terraces.  It is a stand-alone building with its own setting in a cul-de-sac, set back from the main road.  As a result, it will not interfere with the setting of any existing developments.  The footprint largely follows the established building lines of the existing flatted development to the west.”

The site has a long history with plans first emerging back in 2005 for the erection of seven flats, only to be superceded by later applications.

At least you don't need to drive past it to get anywhere. Looks like a heavy handed approach to a small block of flats.
