The project integrates 100 mixed type houses within the sensitive pastoral landscape of West Lothian near the town of East Calder. Situate on former farmland our proposed development is arranged within a triangular site and is surrounded by wide bands of meadow and deciduous forest. Two parallel arterial roads capable of carrying vehicular traffic bisect the site and act as anchors to the development. The proposed plan follows the geometry of the site and consists of various house types radiating in long bands or ‘rigs' from the apex of the triangular site. The buildings themselves are in simple, traditional forms and are constructed of local materials but with contemporary detailing. Pantile, clay, shingle, timber louvers, sheet material and glass are combined in an elegant, rustic and retained palette that is suited to the sensitive landscape. The houses are simple an reduced in their form and have a distinctive, yet traditional silhouette on the flat West Lothian Landscape.
