Extension approved for B-listed Aberdeen crescent
June 8 2016
Argyle Crescent in the city’s Rosemount district is an inverted crescent with a concave rear determined an innovative approach to comply with Historic Environment Scotland’s stipulation that nothing be done to obscure the full extent of the existing elevation.
To achieve this TCD have detached the extension visually by employing a glazed link to physically marry the existing façade to the extension without interrupting it.
Practice director Steve Lawrence commented: “These are the projects we relish at TCD as their complexities due to listed-building regulations make the design process more challenging.
“The completed build will add a spacious area to the property while also retaining the integrity and character of the grade B listed property.”
Work on the build is expected to get underway in August.
