JM submit Edinburgh student residences proposal
November 25 2013student residential scheme in Newington, Edinburgh, have been submitted by Buile Developments.
Situated between Lutton Place and Bernard Terrace the development would deliver 122 flats ranging in size from three to six bedrooms and consists of two main elements; a tenement scale intervention to the front with smaller mews style properties to the rear.
Designed by JM Architects the scheme has been massed to respond to the proportions of adjoining tenements with projecting elements intended to enliven the street frontage, which benefits from landscaped gardens thanks to a set-back building line.
Sandstone panels have been selected to emulate the materiality of neighbouring Georgian and Victorian tenements in the South Side Conservation Area whilst a continuous white precast string course at every floor level accentuates the buildings horizontal nature.
To the rear a series of mews-style properties finished in render and timber will benefit from their own landscaped green roofs and private courtyards, replacing an existing car park and light industrial units.
