Scotland’s Most Innovative Property Developer for over 35 Years
Designed around two landscaped courtyards, Alvernia Gardens featured 46 homes in a development that required the sympathetic conversion of the former Mount Alvernia Convent and the addition of four new buildings.
The conversion of the former chapel and connected wing formed nine homes, which retained many original features, including the magnificent oriel windows. The interiors were contemporary in design, however, they included elements of gothic detailing, which provide a visual synergy with building’s history.
The new blocks were sympathetically designed to complement the existing convent buildings. Stone detailing around the windows and Norman arches over the exterior doors gave a nod to the history of the site without falling into pastiche. There were 31 apartments spread over three blocks, while the fourth block was formed by a terrace of six three-bedroom houses.
