In response to the shortage of affordable housing, this scheme proposes 24 new apartments in Dunbar. The mixture of one and two bedroom apartments provide efficient and flexible living in close proximity to Town Centre. The community-focused 3 storey apartment blocks are arranged around a large central communal courtyard, whilst each apartment also enjoys a private terrace.
Working closely with our client and the local authority, we have taken cognisance of various conditions of the site and the local vernacular to achieve a design which sits comfortably in context. The massing and materiality of the apartments are respectful of the surrounding buildings. White render finish is punctuated by metal cladding, establishing a subtle contemporary aesthetic.
