Dandara return with fresh plans for 113 Meadowbank homes
September 24 2019
Dandara Group and CDA Architects have revisited plans for 113 homes off at Lochend Park near Meadowbank Stadium, Edinburgh, having shaved a single floor off the northernmost apartment block - reducing the total number of homes by 12 in the process.
Proposals entail the creation of four such apartment blocks rising above a shared podium deck adjacent to a mews terrace on a finger of land bounded by a railway line, ending in a communal garden to the far west of the site.
This would supplant a hodgepodge of business units which currently occupy the site.
Explaining this design strategy the architects wrote: “The apartment buildings have been designed similar to a courtyard. Four separate apartment buildings are arranged around a central landscaped deck which binds the blocks together.
“The buildings all vary in height, this creates a variety and character for each building and a change in scale which complements the surrounding context.
“A mews terrace is proposed along the thin stretch of land which runs along the southern edge of Lochend Park.”
Building entrances will be set back from the street within landscaped courtyards, defined by canopies and bronze detailing.
