Rural Design

Rural design: Future landscapes

This brings together a range of rural design initiatives which have been carried out by the Scottish Government in conjunction with Orkney Islands Council and Comhairlie nan Eilean Siar. In particular, collaboration was agreed on (1) developing a new approach to writing design guides, (2) working on a kit house re-design exercise and (3) providing masterplanning training. Together, these projects provide new approaches to the rural design agenda by demonstrating how sensitive design should be incorporated into successful place-making for rural Scotland.
