UWS gains approval in principle for Keppie designed residential masterplan
The masterplan by Keppie Design has been highly commended by South Ayrshire Council and Ayrshire Roads Alliance for its interpretation of the latest Scottish Government design guidance; Creating Places, Designing Streets and National Roads Development Guide.
The masterplan contains a mixture of high quality detached, semi-detached and terraced dwellings, surrounding a central shared activity space, providing a focal point and meeting place for all residents.
The aim being to create a safe and desirable people-focused community of landscape and buildings, where the streetscape is not dominated by vehicles.
David Ross, design director at Keppie Design, said: “We are delighted to have assisted our Clients in securing this extremely important approval. Our wider knowledge of the campus context and of the potential market was a significant factor in its development.”
Kevin Stewart, project architect at Keppie Design, added: “The relationship between people, dwellings and circulation was fundamental to the success of the design from the outset. Our aim is to help form a vibrant community through considered design, which has been achieved due to our ongoing close working relationship with the project stakeholders.”
