Bonnington residential push continues with plans for 58 flats
November 1 2019
A disused warehouse in the Bonnington district of north Edinburgh has been earmarked for a development of 58 apartments designed by ISA after being snapped up by Glencairn Properties.
Supplanting a prior 2017 planning consent the latest proposals for 14 Ashley Place the latest residential bid will take the form of an L-plan block with recessed zinc-clad upper storey rising from subtle brick detailing employed to provide texture to the facades.
A feature curved corner has also been introduced to maximise eastward views along Tinto Place toward Leith.
In their design statement, the architects wrote: “The use of brick gives the development a domestic character and scale while allowing for considered details to delineate floor levels, highlight entrances, and create depth at window and door reveals to give a sense of solidity.”
Ground floor units will be finished in a darker brick to complement adjacent flats.
