British Golf Museum wins rooftop extension bid
February 10 2014rooftop extension at the British Golf Museum, St Andrews, have been given the nod by Fife Council.
Situated on the Bruce Embankment it would enjoy expansive views across West Sands beach and will ‘enhance the appearance’ of the nearby B-listed Royal and Ancient Golf Club, it is claimed.
Designed by Richard Murphy Architects the scheme will create an 80-seat café and outdoor terrace, drawing more tourists to the attraction.
Fife Council service manager Alastair Hamilton, said: “In this instance, due to the high quality and well considered design of the proposed scheme, it is considered that the proposed extension and alterations would enhance the appearance of the existing building and visual amenity of the surrounding Bow Butts area whilst preserving the character and appearance of the St Andrews Conservation Area, the historic St Andrews skyline and the setting of the neighbouring listed building.”
The project follows on from construction of a new storage facility on the green by the St Andrews Links Trust.
