214 homes on the cards for Edinburgh’s Bonington Village
December 10 2015214 homes arranged over five blocks at Bonington Village, Edinburgh, on a site presently occupied by warehousing.
Architects EMA aim to reinstate the building line with blocks ranging up to six storeys fronting a range of existing and internal streets in addition to semi-private spaces to the rear with public access also offered to the Water of Leith.
In their design statement the architects said: “The architectural style will be contemporary but materials chosen will reflect the sites rich industrial heritage. Red bricks echo the many mills, foundries and warehouses once located in the Bonington District and grey monoblock paviors reflect the cobbled streets which would have once prevailed.”
The scheme will be designed in accordance with Designing Streets with an expectation that neighbouring industrial properties will also make way for more housing in the fullness of time.
