Bonnyrigg Market homes find approval
April 30 201814 homes on the site of a former market, most recently in use as a car park.
Evantyr Developments will split accommodation between two elements, led by seven flats above a single ground floor retail unit, prominently on the town’s High Street. This will segue to a mix of seven terraced and semi-detached properties to the rear, each with its own private amenity space.
Outlining their design the architects wrote: “In the High Street block, brick soldier courses are used to provide a horizontal emphasis, separating the middle residential section of the elevation away from the ground floor retail.
“At the top floor the plan is significantly recessed to minimise visual impact, with the overall height tying in with adjacent masonry chimney stacks and the walls finished in grey metal cladding to harmonise contextually with the slate roofs.”
A common area of landscaping will also be incorporated for the benefit of all residents.
