HERON PLACE

NEW BUILD SOCIAL HOUSING

We were appointed by Muir Group Housing to design thirty-two general let flats for singles and couples on a site located near to the city centre. Individual outdoor space was an important aspect of the design and, as such, all ground floor properties have level access onto private, rear yards with landscaped front patios. Upper floor flats were designed with French doors and open balustrades.

Two of the ground floor flats were specifically designed for tenants with disabilities. The two and three-storey buildings are grouped around a south facing courtyard which accommodates parking within soft landscaping.

In 1995 this scheme was awarded a Civic Commendation Award.
