A collection of 11 high end new build apartments on the edge of the New Town and situated on the Water of Leith. The proposals draw from the historic character of the area while boldly developing a language for today’s lifestyle.
The apartments are all open plan taking advantage of this stunning riverside location, maximising views and interaction with the water. Each of the 3/4 bedroom apartments provides large balconies/terraces to animate the streetscape and engage with its context.
The design references the history of the location by integrating the façade of an existing stone cottage on the site and contrasting this with modern materials. A carefully selected material palette of stone, brick and zinc are applied to elements of the design to achieve a high-quality balanced appearance.
LBA have worked closely with the local community to provide a scheme that not only sits comfortably within its context but also maximises the opportunities to develop the site.
