Following Planning Permission in Principle approval earlier this year, 7N have submitted detailed proposals to develop Phase One of the Fraser Avenue masterplan on behalf of Kingdom Housing Association. This will see the redevelopment of existing social housing in Inverkeithing, Fife, with an initial phase of 53 new homes.


The terraced designs, which will replace the unsuccessful flatted development on the site, have developed as a result of extensive dialogue with existing residents and the local community, undertaken in collaboration with Fife Council. With a simple, contemporary palette of materials and pitched roof forms that respond to the site topography and the variety of unit types, a distinctive new identity will be created for Fraser Avenue.


Speaking to Scottish Construction Now, Elspeth Lang, senior development services officer at Kingdom, said

“The works on phase one are programmed to start on site, towards the end of this year, when the demolition of the existing flats is completed. In addition to the new housing it is intended to incorporate a number of community initiatives into the contract, including employment and training initiatives and integrated public art work.”

Our Work - In May, 7N signed the Architect’s Declare open letter which has been signed by over 625 architectural practices. Signing the Architect’s Declare letter involves endorsing eleven ‘pledges’ which range from advocacy and raising awareness of climate and biodiversity emergencies, to significant changes in working practices around carbon modelling, resource use and knowledge sharing. Like many others, we have turned the lens on the operations of our practice and our projects to better understand where we can make a real difference and how meaningful changes can be advocated and realised. Our research will be shared in a sustainability focused blog series to document this journey, but to mark today’s day of climate action we’re offering some initial findings along with links to information others may find useful and interesting ; to read the full article, visit our Journal page - link in bio.
