Davidson Crescent

Davidson Crescent
2012
Designed in consultation with a local community design working group, this residential development in the former mining village of Twechar in East Dunbartonshire consists of 41 houses and cottage flats set within a shared surface environment that takes advantage of the countryside setting and distant views.

The public realm is designed to ensure car parking is evenly distributed throughout the development with in-curtliage gable parking, semi private courtyard, and on-street parking together with integrated amenity and landscaped public space.

The development was designed with both energy efficiency and sustainable construction high on the agenda together with a eco-
homes ‘Very Good’ rating being achieved. The limited palette of facade materials reflects the local vernacular and is complementary to the existing rural context.
