Faithlie Centre

Faithlie Centre

Moxon Architects have transformed two central civic buildings in the major fishing port of Fraserburgh, to form a single unified headquarters for Aberdeenshire Council.

As the first completed project of the Fraserburgh 2021 Townscape Heritage and Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme, the principle objectives were to extensively restore the existing Town House at 1-3 Saltoun Square, rehabilitate the derelict police station, and make both buildings more accessible to the public. The scheme seeks to reinvigorating this key part of the town centre and act as a catalyst for future and ongoing restoration work.

A contemporary extension to the rear, clad in a veil of corten steel, performs the function of binding these two existing buildings together, serving as both a means of unencumbered access to all levels and a new ‘front of house’ to council services, while providing an exemplar for reinstatement of original architectural detail in the town centre.
