Revised Dalry student residential proposals tabled
A revised application to build new student flats at Murieston Crescent in Dalry, Edinburgh, has hit planner’s desks with Kenneth Reid Architects proposing to reduce room sizes to allow an increase in the number of self-contained studio flats from 101 to 123.

Built on the site of an old wireworks the scheme is described as ‘traditional in form but contemporary in detailing’ with a ‘shop-front like’ ground floor area housing student break out areas.

Private landscaped gardens will fill an interior courtyard to the North West with provision for 100 cycle spaces also being made.

The scale and massing of the proposed flats have been conceived to tie in with Edwardian tenements along Murieston Crescent.

Superb stuff from KRA's SketchUp department again. Someone needs to tell their Part 1 student that it's possible to switch off profiles and increase the output resolution so that these renders look less amateurish. Although then the paucity of detail in the proposal might become more apparent...

There will be more space in one of those train carriages that float so elegantly by the front door.

The Crescent is Viccie's time, not Eddies. Eddie is from 1901. One of the posher streets in Dalry.
