Extra care housing and support,

Lairg





Working with Athena Solutions and Urban Animation this feasibility study explored how a former hotel site in the Highland village of Lairg could be redeveloped to provide flexible housing for residents as they become older.


Arranged around a landscaped central space, and taking advantage of the wonderful views westwards and existing mature trees around the site, the single storey houses use an off the shelf solution from local company Carbon Dynamic. To the north the entrance building contains a large, bright social space and support spaces and can be accessed directly from some of the houses.


A series of community engagement events helped to establish the most important features of the site, as well as developing layout options.
