AIM were comissioned by Scottish Enterprise to form proposals for a new Creative Media District at Seabraes Yards in Dundee.

The proposed masterplan is formed entirely of modular construction and prefabricated elements including a central core of offices created using recycled shipping containers. This is one example of a wide range of sustainable strategies adopted for the development of the site.

The developed Building and Environmental initiatives have emerged to provide a new plan strongly founded on perceived value and sustainability. Close interface development between each of the zones has produced a District of raw and honest character with industrial process evident and celebrated in all areas. This consistent approach has produced a series of physically contrasting building forms that are truly a product of each users particular agenda.

Despite the physical difference, the development of a consistent & robust approach in each buildings external fabric has maintained a common aesthetic strengthening the relationship between each of the buildings and their surrounding environment.

The unique appeal of DISTRICT 10 offers flexible development opportunities to future organisations and sets out specific guidance for their delivery.

With the universal push towards Zero Carbon neighbourhoods and Cities, District 10 provides an exemplar of mixed community planning while tackling the increasingly common issue of Brownfield remediation.
