AJ Awards Shortlist - Fraser Avenue

We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the AJ Awards Housing category for the regeneration of Fraser Avenue in Inverkeithing.

Fraser Avenue, was no longer fit for purpose. Living in one of the most disadvantaged areas in Scotland, residents felt a lack of belonging. Fife Council engaged 7N to work with the local community to develop regeneration proposals. An extensive engagement process with residents confirmed that their negative feelings about the area were linked to the poor layout and ambiguously designed spaces of the existing estate.

7N’s masterplan addresses this through a placemaking framework where every space has a clear purpose and defined sense of ownership, creating a new neighbourhood woven into the social and physical fabric of the area.

Phase one of the 3 phase Masterplan was completed in 2020, with Phase 2 well under way.

We look forward to hearing the results in November.
