Edinburgh small sites initiative gets underway in Sighthill and Pilton
May 10 2016
Calder Gardens in Sighthill will provide 37 new homes and West Pilton Grove will provide an additional 29, both of which will occupy brownfield land and as such seek to integrate with existing public realm, adopting ‘stripped back’ architecture and a restrained palette of materials - predominantly brick.
Stuart Bishop, director at Barton Willmore, said: “We want to provide new neighbourhoods that have a sense of place, with integrated quality public realm and architecture, helping to ensure long term sustainable communities that are fundamentally a great place to live”.
Stewart Shearer, managing director of Robertson Partnership Homes, added: “The sites would form the first of several developments under the 21st Century Homes Small Sites Programme, which will see new affordable and mid-market rent properties delivered across the north and west of the city.”
Barton Willmore are serving as architects, landscape architects and planners for both schemes which are being delivered in partnership with Robertson partnership Homes and City of Edinburgh Council on constrained plots within established communities.
