Aberdeen pub switches from live music to living
June 22 2022
Cumming & Co acting on behalf of Brew Toon proposes to retain the Malt Mill bar while demolishing a live music venue underneath for replacement by a granite and timber-clad apartment block.
The current Holburn Street frontage meanwhile will be stripped back and opened up to present a more modern frontage of large format glazing framed by granite and timber cladding.
In a statement, the applicant wrote: "The proposed extension massing is dictated by the restrictive site nature and boundary constraints. The massing of the extension is broken up by the recessed and protruding façade pattern. The introduction of two cladding materials helps to break up the solid form and the variance in material colours allows an interesting visual contrast."
A small garden secured by a decorative metal railing will be provided for the amenity of residents on Union Glen.
