Dundee sheltered housing plans emerge
May 13 2015submitted plans for a 43 flat development on the site of a former Scottish Water depot at the junction of Pitkerro and Stobsmuir Road’s, Dundee.
Located close to two B-listed buildings in a predominantly residential area the site is screened from the road by a two metre high stone wall.
In their design statement Young & Gault Architects noted: “Particular care has been taken in the choice of external materials to reinforce the building’s traditional vernacular aesthetic and to be appropriate within the context of the Maryfield Conservation Area.
“The proposed design incorporates a mixture of textured cast stone and render. The cast stone is used to visually reiinforce the corners of the building on the primary frontage. The combination of the two materials creates visually interesting compositions on the various elevations.”
It is the latest in a series of retirement complexes to be delivered by the developer, most recently a 39 flat scheme in Edinburgh’s Morningside.
