Kincardine-on-Forth Town redesign project makes Scottish Design Awards shortlist
A community-led design project in a Fife town has been nominated for a Scottish Design Award. Created by HarrisonStevens, the Edinburgh-based Landscape Architects and Urban Designers, the Kincardine, Places for Everyone project has been nominated in the Future Building or Project category in the annual awards.
This project aims to improve connectivity and circulation, the environment, and people’s experience of the village.
HarrisonStevens Landscape Architect, Daniela Miler, said “The Kincardine project demonstrates well what could be achieved by adopting a co-design process. The scheme delivers a people-first approach to design following extensive involvement from the local community, who have been actively engaged since 2017, creating safe, attractive, and engaging spaces in the heart of the town. Being shortlisted in the Scottish Design Awards is recognition of our approach to community-led design and collaboration to create a great place and spaces for everyone.”
A revitalised and sustainable high street that will enhance commercial activity and a new link between the High Street and the long-distance Fife Coast route will utilise existing focal points within and around the town. The project also demonstrates a strong desire to enhance the commercial activity on the High Street and make it a more people-friendly space.
Judging will take place by a panel of experts and winners will be announced at the Scottish Design Awards ceremony on 15 July.
Formed in 2010, and employing an expert team of landscape architects, urban designers and spatial planners, the award-winning company has built an international reputation for exploring and maximising the unique potential of every site, including streetscapes, campuses, regeneration schemes, parks and green/blue infrastructure active travel corridors that enhance biodiversity and are rooted in their locations and communities.
