Contemporary canal-side flats by Dunedin Canmore Housing Association have won a coveted national design accolade.

The St Mark’s Quay affordable rented housing development at Lochrin Basin, Fountainbridge, Edinburgh, has received a Scottish Design Award.

The 22 open plan one and two-bedroom apartments were designed by Michael Laird Architects and built by Mactaggart & Mickel. They have floor to ceiling windows overlooking a landscaped south-facing courtyard. Two of the flats on the ground floor are suitable for wheelchair users.
