Dandara table plans for Aberdeen ‘village’
Dandara have brought forward plans to build 116 homes spread across two apartment blocks and a retirement block, as well as 35 houses, at pinewood and Hazledene, Aberdeen.

Incorporating houses designed specifically for the over-55’s the ‘village’ will include homes suitable for all ages as well as landscaped grounds and restored drystone boundary walls.

In a design statement Dandara observed: “Roofs will be dark grey coloured tiles with dartk grey flashings. The roofs to the dormers and apartments will be zinc like dark grey.

“Walls are predominantly white rendered with areas of cladding to add a warmth to the building facades.”

Access routes will follow guidance laid out in Designing Streets with pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles all sharing a common space.

Crikey, that is a truly hideous scheme. I don't know where to begin...probably a business park in 1993 like the architectural styling.

“Walls are predominantly white rendered with areas of cladding to add a warmth to the building facades.”....!!???

Yup, agreed, looks like a recycled business park design not a housing design. Is this really the right picture for the article?
