ST CUTHBERTS STREET, MAYBOLE

Town centre site, creating a new landmark within the town

St Cuthberts Street, Maybole

Two storey terraced houses with 3 storey flats each with own entrance. All houses have level access to back and front doors. This Town Centre site demanded a higher than standard approach to security with curtiledge parking. The development created a new landmark within the town juxtaposed with the 16th Century Castle on the opposite site.

Low energy well insulated houses using natural materials Secure by Design Certified.

We first commissioned A:S-L for 2000 and since then they have designed 11 schemes for Ayrshire Housing – several award winning. We have always been delighted with the quality of their work which combines innovation and an attention to detail with a real understanding of the cost constraints and risk factors that housing associations face. More importantly, our tenants have been invariably delighted with their new homes.

Another difficult site this time in terms of topography and a sensitive planning context. A-S:L worked well to maximise the potential of the site and to ensure that Ayrshire Housing received a bespoke design within the context of a negotiated deal with the contractor who had prior control of the site. Delivered on time and to budget
