Following the success of the Botanics project, Hope Homes (Scotland) Ltd invited us to support them again in the development of a masterplan for a 125 unit, five-phase housing development at Ardrossan Road, West Kilbride.


The development sought to use a similar design vernacular as to that of the stunning ‘Knockroon’ housing development on which the client developed in collaborated with the Princes Trust.

Whilst some existing house type designs were established, we were asked to design various ‘one off’ feature house types to add variety to the street elevations and site layout and create feeling of established external space.


The client was keen for us create a site layout which felt that it had organically grown and evolved over time. As such, we developed a conceptual narrative which allowed us to play with external treatments, landscaping and building massing, placing familiar traditional features such as a ‘village green’ and pedestrianised areas at strategic locations throughout the site.
