Prestwick social housing scheme wins all-clear
June 11 2020
LMA Architects have obtained planning consent to build 11 flats on the site of a former police station and social work building in Prestwick.
Two red sandstone buildings at 12-14 Main Street have already been demolished to accommodate the build, with two ornately carved stones retained for incorporation into the new building's facade as the sole reminder of the sites past.
The new building has been designed to st within the existing footprint to maintain as much of the streetscape as possible with a corbelled brick feature element extending past the eaves line to evoke a decorative gable of the site as it was.
All flats will be fully accessible, benefitting from private parking and access to the amenity of nearby Boydfield Gardens.
Led by South Ayrshire Council with Hub South West and Ashleigh the social housing scheme is expected to begin construction later this year.
