Client: Maven Capital

Project: Carters Yard, Stirling

Date: Completed 2021

This compact site in central Stirling is enclosed on three sides by existing retail and residential properties and is enclosed to the primary frontage by the original Old Town wall, a heavily protected scheduled monument.  The 158 bed student housing development creates public space between the building frontage and the Old Town wall, with glazed screens to the Ground Floor amenity areas providing an active frontage.

A variety of high quality accommodation for students is provided, including Studio Apartments, Affordable Apartments and main door Townhouses accessed from the new lane created to the rear of the site.

The design is bold and contemporary with facing brick primary facades and large glazed openings throughout the property to maximise the wellbeing of the residents.
