Design competition winner for Saltcoats site
January 21 2008
Holmes was selected from a shortlist made up of Elizabeth Roxburgh, Cre8 architecture and Joseph Thurrott, three Edinburgh-based practices. The judging panel was headed up by Dick Cannon of Elder and Cannon and included developer Paul McLaughlin, sustainability expert Lori McElroy and Arthur Watson, Development Manager with Irvine Bay URC.
Dick Cannon said "The winning design by the Holmes Partnership is very striking with strong architectural flair and identity. This exciting design exploits the stunning sea-front location and is sure to be a landmark for this prominent site, as well as meeting the need for two and three bedroom flats in the area.” The successful design team from Holmes included Craig Heap, Ryan Holmes and Gavin Salt. The proposed development meets the BREEAM Ecohomes Very Good standard and the design seeks to influence the way in which the occupiers of the houses conserve energy and minimise waste.
