Landmark Lundin Links hotel to be turned into retirement accommodation
February 18 2015turned into 45 retirement homes under plans drawn up by Kapital Residential and Oliver + Robb Architects.
The C-listed Lundin Links Hotel has lain empty since January 2014 and if approved the project would see several extensions to the main 1900 building demolished, allowing extension to the north and east to provide two wings of new build accommodation.
In their design statement Oliver + Robb said: “The proposed north and east wings seek to provide a modern interpretation of the existing architecture of the listed building with facing brick, proprietary render, vertically proportioned windows steep roofs with dormer windows. The use of large vertically proportioned bays that extend beyond the eaves line take their inspiration from the existing and in particular the new projecting bay window on Emsdorf Road.”
New build elements will be finished in facing brick, render and zinc.
New build elements will be recessed with a lower roof and eaves line in deference to the listed building
