Victoria Parade, Dunoon

This new build residential development occupies a prominent coastal location in Dunoon, facing over the Clyde Estuary. This barrier free housing development comprises 14 flats each for 4 persons. Our approach looked to create a sustainable development that would integrate with the local context in a contemporary manner. The simple 2 and 3 storey traditional pitched roof forms sought to mediate between the varying scales of the adjacent residential units and the buildings were strategically positioned to continue the ‘setback’ street line, creating a parking court and a small landscaped court, with the slot between the two buildings providing glimpses of the garden and sea beyond.
