Aberdeen gas works to make way for new flats
August 31 2015erect 32 flats on behalf of Barratt Homes on the site of a former Aberdeen gas works.
Situated adjacent to a larger 'Ocean' development of 174 flats, now under construction, the scheme takes the form of an L-plan block rising from four to six storeys enclosing a semi-private open space.
In their design statement the architects observed: “A landscaped buffer zone of 3.5m will be provided to the south between the proposed block and the heel of the Ocean car park footpath. This amenity space will soften the relationship between the proposed development and the Ocean car parking.
“The soft and hard landscaping will carry on the theme of the Ocean development thus ensuring a high quality development throughout.“
DWA have been appointed as landscape architects.
