Brownfield Aberdeen plot earmarked for 'multi-gabled' flats
December 7 2016block of four flats in a planning application filed by Fitzgerald + Associates.
Situated off North Deeside Road the 0.22 acre site will offer private gardens for each home and south facing balconies for upper level dwellings embodying a contemporary design with a ‘multi gabled’ approach.
Explaining this approach the designers said: “Our design approach in relation to this corner site location, presented an opportunity to provide a strong identity, taking a design lead from an adjacent flatted development, where an existing multiple gable granite building was refurbished [ see fig-01 ], I have sought to replicate this multi-gable approach with a contemporary material palette. This gable approach is reflected elsewhere in the locale.”
The new build will be formed from a clay brick base and Scotlarch finished upper floors to contrast with existing buildings in the area.
