Collective Architecture bags double-win in Scotland

Collective Architecture has won a brace of competitions to masterplan two areas of south-west Scotland.

The Scottish practice has been selected to work on the Dick's Hill area of Stranraer and the Lochside area of Dumfries, which will see up to 400 new homes, a community centre and new public spaces over the two sites.

The practice is proposing the extensive remodelling of the Dick's Hill area, which according to the firm is 'dislocated spatially and socially from the rest of Stranraer'.

Lochside in Dumfries, the firm says, is separated from the rest of Dumfries by busy roads, so new 'green' routes have been identified to integrate new development with existing housing.

The two competition wins mark the first major success for the practice since it changed from Chris Stewart Architects, after it was decided the firm would be owned by an employee trust rather than the principal partner.
