Edinburgh’s small sites initiative reaches Clermiston
October 10 2016submission of plans for 44 homes at Parkgrove Terrace, Clermiston.
Designed by Barton Willmore on behalf of Robertson Partnership Homes the scheme will replace the site of a former care home with a ‘suburban block’ comprising four L-shaped buildings framing a terraced communal garden.
The ‘robust’ development will position living rooms toward the street to provide passive supervision of the neighbourhood.
In their design statement the architects observed: “The built form will respond to the sites topography with the southern flatted blocks to be stepped up to meet the change in level. The articulation of this step will break up the massing, and a non-traditional roofline will further articulate the sites responsive design.”
The small sites programme includes six other locations at Royston, West Pilton Grove, Crewe Road Gardens, Dumbryden, Calder Gardens and Hailesland Place.
