Ashley Place Student Housing


Newbuild development for Glencairn Properties providing a mix of Studio and Cluster Apartments located within the Bonnington District of North Edinburgh.

Following on from a previous residential consent gained by ISA in 2019 the proposed development takes a very similar approach this time with a ‘U-shaped’ building with landscaped private external courtyard.

The upper floors are set back reducing the overall massing with a focal point created at the stepped corner entrance.  The main access is enhanced with contrasting precast detailing along with light and dark brickwork breaking down the rigid grid of bedrooms.

Subtle brick detailing adds texture, depth and richness to the façade. The set back upper levels are clad in a zinc cladding panel.
