Perth estate regeneration delivers new & refurbished homes
November 1 2021
Caledonia Housing Association has delivered 13 new family homes for affordable rent in Perth as part of a broader regeneration of Newhouse Road.
The £4m project saw 72 properties refurbished and a further 30 flats demolished to make way for a mix of detached and semi-detached townhouses with private parking and gardens.
Alan Nairn, chair of Caledonia’s management board, commented: “Regenerating homes and communities is an important objective for us as a housing association. We aim to modernise and maintain our existing housing stock and provide high quality, energy-efficient affordable housing for our tenants.”
Designed by ECD Architects the steeply sloping site demanded stepped housing to minimise the number of retaining walls, establish a strong building line and retain pedestrian access to rear open space.
Bookended by larger properties the brick-built homes contrast with the white render finish of adjoining refurbished properties which boast new kitchens, bathrooms, windows, heating and doors.
