7N Architects, working with Cruden Homes, have secured detailed planning permission for 52 affordable homes on Fishwives' Causeway, Portobello.
The proposal forms part of the Baileyfield masterplan, developed by 7N for a key brownfield site on the main entry to Portobello in Edinburgh. The masterplan, which achieved planning permission in principle in 2015 creates a mixed use neighbourhood with a variety of dwelling types, a central green park and a new local foodstore.
The Fishwives' Causeway proposal builds upon the principles established in the masterplan, creating a strong street frontage and enriched public realm. A limited palette of quality materials has been inspired by the historic fabric of Portobello, and the massing and roof treatment respond sensitively to the local context and its surrounding landscape.
