A little birdy tells Astragal that our old friends Gordon Murray and Alan Dunlop are having problems keeping pesky locals at bay on their practice's first social housing project, which is completing on Telford Drive in Edinburgh. All the groundfloor entrances are currently boarded up, and will remain so until the units are occupied. It could be easy to imagine that this might be overkill, but not when Dunlop deploys this piece of evidence. Just one hour after the grass was rolled into position outside the rather pleasant looking ats, it was, as they'd say down in Sassenach country, tea-leaved. Batten down the hatches.
