This competition submission saw us create an exciting residential development for a woodland site on the outskirts of Edinburgh. With some poor-quality trees removed for the development, the retained trees of importance helped inform the idea of a central landscaped meadow around which would grow a sustainable community development. Careful massing and placing of the residential blocks create 186 units with a unique identity and link to nature, whilst a community hub provides a truly useable social space that promotes community interaction.
