Aberdeen telephone exchange to make way for hundreds of new homes
Allan Murray Architects and Telereal Trillium have outlined plans to build up to 80 flats and 425 student bed spaces at Froghall Terrace, Aberdeen, on the site of a former BT telephone exchange.

An application for planning permission in principle calls for the existing buildings to be demolished and replace with two blocks of accommodation arranged around separate L-shaped buildings and  separate courtyards, connected by a central green space with pedestrian access offered through the gaps between.

Detailing their design solution the architects wrote: “Consideration has been given to integrating the proposals with the existing street scape and public realm, forming new pedestrian linkages and utilising existing vehicular access points.

“The strategy for boundary treatments and peripheral landscaping have been carefully thought through in order to ensure a safe and considerate relationship between the proposed development and existing neighbouring properties.”

The brownfield site was previously subject to an application for 110 flats but this has now expired.
