Pilton plans herald Barton Willmore double
October 11 2016Crewe Road Gardens, Pilton, as part of the City of Edinburgh Council’s small sites programme.
Designed to knot into the surrounding streetscape the social housing project takes the form of twin flatted blocks framing a large open space to the north.
In their design statement Barton Willmore observed: “The design driver for this approach is to create a direct relationship to the tenement building opposite, whilst also providing a termination to the view along Crewe Road Gardens and passive surveillance of the existing footpath linking through to Crewe Road North. This also allows the ground to the rear of the site to be fully integrated into the overall design, providing a generously sized communal garden space for residents with existing mature planting and allowing defensible private garden space for ground floor tenants.”
The homes will be faced in grey brick with windows delineated by feature dark brick panels.
