Ayr townhouses boost affordable homes drive
November 15 2018
South Ayrshire Council has begun delivery of 26 homes on the site of the former Whitletts Primary School in Ayr, including a mix of cottage flats and townhouses fronting the Main Road.
Designed by Mast Architects the project forms part of a commitment to build 1,000 affordable homes over the next five years.
Councillor Philip Saxton commented: “With the street line completed by flats the housing behind will make the best use of the available space, creating a safe, bright environment for tenants and residents, while providing social housing which meets the needs of the local community.”
The £3.9m scheme has necessitated the demolition has necessitated the demolition of four council-owned flats on James Brown Avenue, with affected tenants given the option to relocate to the new development when it completes in September 2019.
There is hope for architecture in Scotland yet!
If it’s not sarcasm... there IS NO HOPE. If it is sarcasm - it’s funny, if not a bit too sarcastic, but there is still HOPE.
Is level access not required to the front door?
I wasn't so much referring to the inset bricks around the windows as the soldier course at the top. Simple additions that make a good scheme a great scheme.
I just hope the reality lives up to the quality shown in the visual because a lot of the time these CGIs promise so much but deliver so little...
