18/ Cornton & Cultenhove Regeneration
Cornton & Cultenhove, Stirling
We created masterplans for 550 new homes to help regenerate the relatively deprived Cornton and Cultenhove estates in Stirling. A major element of the Brief was to engage with the local communities to develop and achieve consensus approval of the masterplans. Our proposals also involved the use of locally-sourced and recycled materials with high levels of thermal insulation, and low energy in use. The first two phases, one in each estate, total 166 houses, starting on site in the summer of 2006. The houses are now all occupied. Our design involved the careful insertion of new housing into existing neighbourhoods. If funding becomes available, other phases may follow. The client is Places for People & Castle Rock Edinvar; the contractor is CCG (Scotland) Ltd.
