As part of the regeneration of Dunira Street/Braidfauld Street, the client wanted to provide 71 new homes of varying sizes and types, including accessible flats and houses. The design approach was for the reinstatement of a perimeter ‘tenement’ block, emphasising the public realm and with private amenity spaces to the rear. On Dunira Street, housing blocks are broken down into pavilions which respond to the new offices but are subservient in scale, making a refined backdrop to the more dominant buildings and their associated public space. The three-storey block on Braidfauld Street completes the triangular site to the north and  responds to the simpler urban context defined by the existing building line. The development meets the Eco Homes ‘Very Good’ target.
