Housing at Gorgie


Competition entry for Scotland's first 'car free' housing project, with an emphasis on ecological issues. The design was based around a series of east-west oriented terraced blocks, with the main living rooms located on south facing walls.These were well glazed, but adaptable by the residents by means of sliding screens, which allowed the interiors to be opened up, or to be protected by insulated panels. The arrangement of public and private spaces, and the transitions between them, was also given particular emphasis in the design.

Engineer: Dr Remo Pedreschi

Location: Gorgie, Edinburgh
