St Mary Housing

Orkney, 2014

Mcadam Design St Mary Housing Orkney

A residential development in St Mary, Holm, Orkney of 51 houses for private purchase and social housing. 


The scheme consists of a mixture of single storey 2/3 bedroom cottages and two-storey 4/5 bedroom houses, all built using the insulated concrete formwork (ICF) method of construction. 


This system is particularly suited to Orkney as it overcomes the need to import blockwork into the island.  The highly insulated system also assists in meeting carbon reduction targets in a location where gas heating is not an option.


The design of the houses was deliberately kept clean and simple to reflect the local vernacular, and the site layout was designed to maximise the spectacular views out to the sea.
