PITT STREET TRAFALGAR LANE

Client : Port of Leith Housing Association
Location : Edinburgh
Value : £2 million
Completion Date : July 2006

Lee Boyd were commissioned to prepare Planning and Building warrant applications for a tenement and mews development on an urban infill site between Pitt Street and Trafalgar Lane, Edinburgh. The Pitt Street side of the development has been designed as a four storey tenement building, while the Trafalgar Lane side accommodates a 3 storey mews type building. Due to the sensitive nature of the site and the close proximity of neighbouring buildings, we worked closely with the planning department to integrate the requirements of brief and budget onto a complex and restricted site. Both block forms are contextual with their surroundings and the contemporary design with the simple palette of materials ensured a successfully completed scheme. The project has given us the opportunity to continue our good working relationship with Port of Leith Housing Association.
