St Andrew’s Residential Development
Housing Development in St Andrews, Fife, Scotland
Sutherland Hussey Architects won an architectural competition to design a new housing development in St Andrews for Eastacre Investments back in February 2013.
In November 2015 – West Burn Lane, St Andrews, was awarded the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award for 2015.
By inviting several firms to develop proposals, Eastacre’s ambition was to select a design that can provide high quality contemporary houses and apartments in the rich and complex conservation area. The West Burn Lane site, located in the heart of the university town adjacent to the School of Psychology and Bute Medical Building, is an important part of the Rigg structure of the medieval plan.
Sutherland Hussey’s proposal separates the units to give individuality and identity to each house. These are organised around private and public courtyards which complement the scale and nature of spaces found elsewhere in St Andrews.
Planning permission was lodged with Fife Council in early 2013. SHA anticipated in February 2013 that the project would be completed by August 2014.
