Keppie Design push ahead with 102-home expansion of Ayr’s Craigie Campus
Keppie Design have secured planning permission in principle for a 102 home residential expansion at the University of the West of Scotland’s Craigie Campus in Ayr.

The masterplan calls for delivery of a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes arranged in compliance with Designing Streets and Creating Places principles to embody a central shared activity space to serve as a meeting point for residents, with pedestrians given priority on surrounding streets.

Keppie’s design director David Ross, commented: “Our wider knowledge of the campus context and of the potential market was a significant factor in its development.”

Kevin Stewart, project architect at Keppie Design added: “The relationship between people, dwellings and circulation was fundamental to the success of the design from the outset.”

The design team will now engage with house builders and developers to carry the scheme through to delivery without compromise.

Keppie using their classic trick of putting loads of trees and people in front of another one of their terrible, terrible designs to disguise how bad it all is.
