We’re delighted that Phase 1 of 7N’s regeneration of Fraser Avenue in Inverkeithing for Kingdom Housing Association has been shortlisted for both this year’s Edinburgh Architectural Association and Homes for Scotland Awards.
Working with contractor Campion Homes and landscape architects Rankin Fraser, the project transforms a mid-20th century housing estate which was no longer fit for purpose.
The new masterplan creates a placemaking framework where every space has a clear purpose and defined sense of ownership, creating a new neighbourhood woven into the social and physical fabric of the area. Working in close collaboration with the community, a strategy was developed with local stakeholders that would transform perceptions and rebuild a strong sense of place and community with the full phased demolition and complete redevelopment of the street. In the new homes, existing residents will enjoy lower density housing in a comfortable and secure environment, with private front and back gardens, tree lined streets and accessible open spaces.
Winners for both awards will be announced in May.
