£17m Aberdeen student build breaks ground
June 21 2016173 bed student apartment scheme at Causewayend, Aberdeen, valued at £17m.
Finished in grey/buff brickwork with splayed window reveals and Corten steel cladding the timber frame scheme will wrap around an interior courtyard finished in white render.
In their design statement GWP observed: “The use of white, opaque polycarbonate panels, backlit with varying strength /coloured lighting, offering subtle changes in shadow and brightness, will create interest and a level of intrigue. At higher level, these panels will act as a subtle beacon to the townscape beyond.”
Above the corner of the building, the deep warm tones of ‘Corten’ steelwork panels are set back from the main façade. The rough nature of this unfinished metal work reinforces the industrial nature of the area, combining industry with the home.”
The scheme is being built right next door to Powis Place, a 196 bed student apartment scheme currently under construction and will replace a derelict four storey office building.
