Boherboy Road is a social and affordable housing scheme, located adjacent to the schools and shopping centre in Mayfield. The scheme ties neatly into its sloping context, creating streets with the potential to link to neighbouring residential estates, securing the back gardens of existing dwellings with back-to-back conditions, and creating a series of open spaces that benefit from views over the city.

A generous public open space is located at the heart of the project, ensuring that all dwellings have convenient access to the amenity area and its associated creche.  The scale of the development is in keeping with the sites' surroundings, utilising a majority of one & two storey houses, with distinctive mono-pitched duplexes and apartments located on corners, creating variety within the streetscape.  A simple palette of render and grey brick unifies both the architecture and the landscape details.

The project is the first affordable purchase housing scheme in the country, and the first to be approved for support from the Governments’ Serviced Sites Fund.
