Aberdeen church hall to make way for 20 flats
April 14 2016historic Aberdeen church hall save for the front façade to facilitate construction of 20 apartments.
Situated at 116 Rosemount Place, within the Rosemount and Westburn conservation area, the project will see Neil Rothnie Architects remodel the existing hall for residential use as an extension to the former Rutherford Church, which was itself converted to flats back in 2013.
Outlining their design approach the architects said: “The overall approach has been to retain the main walls in order that the appearance of the building from the street remains the same. High quality materials are to be used throughout with subtle details such as style and colour of windows, infilling of the front wall and continuation of railings to match the adjoining building.
“The northernmost part of the building to the lane at the lower level is to be rebuilt in a vertical timber cladding to create the effect of a small back lane garage and fence. Above this the building is finished in a vertical zinc cladding which will give it ‘lightness’.”
