Project Name: Streetscape at Scotland’s Housing Expo
Building Type: Landscaping
Location: Scotland’s Housing Expo, Milton of Ley’s, Inverness
Project: The paving on the Expo site is a mixture of Caithness flagstone paving slabs, recycled granite setts and gravel. The shared space design philosophy had a profound influence on the design of the streets and on the architecture. The concept aims for a reconciliation of life on residential streets with cars and other vehicles, establishing safe walking and cycling routes and balancing the experience of all users, from pedestrians to children playing, thus encouraging a more active and lively use of streets.
Materials Featured: Caithness Flagstone paving slabs, recycled granite setts, gravel.
