Kelso Townscape Heritage Initiative

Camerons were selected for this challenging commission through a national bidding process.

For the first significant new build within the historic Kelso town centre for some time, the brief is to replace the existing public convenience and to  incorporate this into additional facilities for a transport hub and tourist information, while preserving the existing pedestrian link.  The upper floors will provide additional flexible letting space for local businesses, while photovoltaic panels on the flat roof, invisible from street level, will provide a sustainable electricity supply.

We have proposed a contemporary take on a typical Kelso building using an approach  "honest to its times". The design addresses both streets as prime  elevations while respecting the rhythm, scale and context of each.  Planning approved June 2012.
