When CALA Homes (East) announced the launch of the much-loved traditional Edinburgh colony housing model at its Cammo Meadows development our Property PR team new how to construct the perfect story.

First built in 1850, the traditional Edinburgh colony model is a housing style which is intrinsic to the capital. Consisting of a ground floor apartment with two duplex homes above it, the style has become beloved amongst city locals.

Inspired by this original design, CALA has now launched a “view home” at its Cammo Meadows development, the latest of its development to receive a modern interpretation of the traditional Edinburgh colony model.

Our property PR team were ready to showcase the cherished style, delivering the fantastic results:

  • 232,614 items of coverage across online and print publications
  • Exclusive feature in the Daily Record
  • Key features in; Edinburgh Architecture, Deadline News, and Urban Realm

Our team initially liaised with journalists from the Daily Mail to secure an exclusive feature on the colonies, obtaining professionally shot images and valuable design insight from David Smith, Architectural Manager at CALA Homes to help shape the story.

We then issued the release to the wider press, achieving fantastic coverage across refurb and renovation press, architecture press, property press, and Edinburgh regional press.

This coverage highlighted the new view home to an abundance of potential buyers and helped establish CALA’s commitment to bringing traditional design into the 21st Century for the modern homeowner.
