Housing-led regeneration to transform former Kilmarnock college site
September 21 2020
Barratt Homes with EMA are pushing on with a residential-led regeneration of the former Ayrshire College in Kilmarnock with the delivery of 63 homes.
The Scholars will transform 6.9-acres of brownfield land close to the town centre, responding to the dominant red sandstone construction of a C-listed terrace in the conservation area with red brick, natural slate and render.
The approach seeks to add to a tree-lined corridor along De Walden Terrace to the east and Holehouse Road to the north, providing a natural boundary to both sides.
In a masterplan statement, EMA wrote: "The house styles and finishes have been carefully selected for this site and are intended to reflect the existing strong palette of materials. The forms, including proportion, roof pitch and fenestration are all traditional. "The buildings respect traditional qualities of form and proportion but will combine with contemporary detailing to reflect 21st-century construction techniques."
Homes will be oriented around a series of informal courtyards aligned with woodland and open space.
