Creating places to call home

Oberlanders sector residential 1

Our award winning portfolio is a testament to the care and responsibility we carry when designing places and spaces for people to live and thrive.

Our residential design philosophy

At the heart of our philosophy is the creation of places that we’d be proud to call home, as distinctive, diverse and unique as the communities we serve. Our team combines a huge breadth of knowledge across the residential sector, be it general, modular, high-rise, Build-to-Rent (BtR) or Purpose-Built Student Accommodation (PBSA). Whatever the project we shape a team aligned to our client’s needs and aspirations.

A case study in revolutionising urban mixed-use development

Springside’s contemporary streetscape and public realm is successfully stitched into its surrounding traditional urban fabric. A truly mixed use community has been created through the diverse portfolio and mix of affordable housing, luxury residential for private sale, Purpose-Built Student Accommodation, Build-to-Rent, an apart-hotel and hotel. 

The first phase quickly became a benchmark, leading the way in contemporary high density urban design and placemaking in City of Edinburgh Council design guidance. Looking as good today as it first did, the project is a great testament to cohesive, aspirational but cost effective design, where our residential expertise is able to prosper and enable truly mixed-use, urban environments.

Core to our work no matter who we design for, be it students, families, individuals, those with varying needs or entire communities, is a drive to push the art of what’s possible while respecting the realities of budget and timelines. We aspire to evoke pride in people and place by crafting spaces that blend robust functionality with thoughtful and inspiring design.
