This piece explores a sample of housing forming edges to parks, public open space and the wider landscape. This fourth of seven in our typologies series explores buildings at the edge in Scottish urban and rural landscapes. Illustrated by mapping, photography and scale drawings, our aim is to show the linkage between design of the house and the place of which it forms a part.
Here we illustrate built examples where architects and urban designers have sought to reconcile contemporary living with the wider roles and functions of the individual house that are integral to placemaking.
