Sir Basil Spence, of the architects firm Spence, Glover and Ferguson, designed this modern complex on the Canongate. Completed by 1969, the development consists of three colourful blocks of flats constructed of rubble, concrete and harl, with concrete arcaded canopies at the front and balconies at the rear.
