“Gehl architects, Copenhagen have collaborated with many places around the world from Christchurch in New Zealand, Bergen in Norway to New York, as well as many other smaller communities, and we are proud to be a part of the An Camas Mòr team. Our process always begins with people, by listening and engaging with the future residents of a community, which is why we turn the design process upside down and start our project by planning for life first – then space – then buildings.”

“It’s so important that as many local people as possible come along to “Share your ideas” on Sunday 25th February. Gehl and the team are here to listen to the needs of our local community and will be presenting their findings at the Scottish Parliament the same week. An Camas Mòr needs to reflect current and future needs of local residents in order to make this ambitious community sustainability project successful”
