More student housing on the cards for Aberdeen
February 19 2015student housing development at Rosemount Place, Aberdeen.
Situated within the Rosemount and Westburn conservation area the development will replace an empty single storey parade of shops with a new food shop and student dorms above.
In a design statement the HFM observed: “The frontage of the new build was designed to integrate with the local tenement structures in height, scale and massing with the floor to ceiling windows emulating the tall window style of the tenement set above each other giving the vertical nature to the designs.
“The corner detail is simple but notes its position with a pedimented facade at roof level which stands out from the roof and sets its place on the streetscape. The Dutch-barn roof style was retained for setting and carries round the frontage from Rosemount Street to View Terrace which includes lead finished dormers to top floor.”
The property will be faced in granite with render to the rear.
