Inspired and affordable resolution of an almost inaccessible site

Trail Architects for Ark Estates
Contract value: Undisclosed
This development is an inspired and affordable resolution of a difficult, steep and almost inaccessible site in the centre of Inverness. It has transformed and revitalised an all but abandoned no-go area of the city. The external public stairway and pedestrian route link the streets at the top and bottom of this site and give access to a series of external landings serving the three tiers of housing which provide 16 flats. The main living area of each flat benefits from views over the city, adding to the desirability of these cleverly planned affordable homes.
