St Andrews golf clubhouse back on the cards
February 15 2016Feddinch Mains, St Andrews, ahead of an existing consent from 2011 lapsing.
Scotia Investments are seeking to build a golf clubhouse on the site of a vacant farm steading and farmland to the town’s south west, demolishing existing outbuildings to make way for 41 bedrooms, a restaurant and shop.
In their design statement G1 said: “It is fitting for the Dormy House to take its lead from the original pure historical footprint of the steading. A courtyard design solution has been utilised to allow views on arrival to be carefully controlled, facilitating compression and release.
“Formation of an intimate courtyard can enhance the sense of arrival. The courtyard layout has necessitated a narrow width of building and this is beneficial in maintaining a lower ridge profile in accordance with requirements of the planning conditions.”
It is proposed to retain the farmhouse for use as a boutique spa, subject to a future planning application.
