Kilwinning Main Street
Austin-Smith:Lord was initially appointed by Irvine Bay Urban Regeneration Company to provide a Town Regeneration Plan to guide the sustainable regeneration of Kilwinning.
Following this, we were appointed as Landscape Architects to provide public realm proposals for Kilwinning Main Street.
The Main Street is the key open space in Kilwinning and the project aimed to transform the historic setting of the Town Centre and the Abbey with high quality, design led public space improvements. The creation of an attractive, robust and adaptable streetscape will encourage the wider regeneration of the town. New paving, seating, lighting and landscaping all contribute to make this a dynamic space that will attract new business, create jobs and increase visitor numbers.
A shining example of what can be achieved. The creative thinking behind this scheme has invigorated the town’s main street by attracting new business…….This is a new beginning. Kilwinning is now on the up.
