Inverness infill tackles housing shortage
December 18 2017
Supplanting a former supermarket and car showroom the Academy Street project will split retail and pedestrian access from the front elevation and rear (School Lane) frontages respectively.
In a statement the architects observed: “A limited material palette combining a mixture of urban rainscreen cladding materials is proposed. Render and curtain walling are selectively used throughout the development, helping to break up the mass of the buildings and in turn create interesting juxtapositions of materials. The result is a self assured architectural language which allows the design to portray a modern crisp development.”
The mixed use build is being delivered on behalf of Capital Developments, The Highland Housing Alliance and Highland Council.
