Stirling city centre expands with Raploch vision
November 22 2019
A major mixed-use development in Raploch, Stirling, is being brought forward comprising a 71-bed care home, accommodation for 305 students and amenity space in accordance with a masterplan drawn up by ADP on behalf of Caledon | TDL.
Orchard Village sits on a currently disconnected site which will be drawn back into the city centre by the creation of new pedestrian links and enhanced public realm while helping to reconnect the historic city core with the riverfront.
Conceived as two distict elements Unum Partnership are responsible for the design of the care home for Northcare (Scotland) while Wellwood Leslie Architects took the reins of the student village for Scape Homes.
Architecture takes its cue from surrounding horizontal tenements with a reinterpretation of historic window rhythms, dormers and roof planes in a materials palette of stone rainscreen, metal cladding and buff/grey multi brick, symapthetic to the Bruce Street conservation area.
Built around the existing Orchard House Health Centre the scheme will include a programme of streetscape improvements to transform Union Street into a planted pedestrian boulevard.
