Flats plan emerges for at risk Broughty Ferry villa
H&H Properties are progressing plans to convert the C-listed Armistead House and Lodge, Broughty Ferry, into 26 new homes to designs by the Voigt Partnership.

Currently on the Buildings at Risk Register Armitstead House would be sensitively restored, with a later 1930’s extension demolished to allow two flanking ‘bookend’ apartment blocks built whilst maintaining views to communal gardens.

In a design statement for the revised designs the architects said: “The proposed layout is re-designed to take advantage of the southern aspect whilst creating gables to echo the existing building. A large glazed stairwell to the south breaks the blocks, which are slightly lower in height than the approved scheme.

“At the north a glazed canopy clearly marks the main entrance. Both blocks complement the existing building and create an attractive south elevation composition. Special consideration was given to the east and west boundary elevations to remove overlooking windows and minimise intrusion on adjacent properties.”

New build elements will be clad in render and replica timber.

Extensions are a bit too overpowering of the existing builiding and more sympathetic finishing colours on the new build might help.
