Newburgh hotel homes in on residential-led transformation
January 13 2017Udny Arms Hotel in Newburgh, Aberdeenshire, is set for significant redevelopment following submission of plans to reduce the main hotel building to 12 en-suite rooms and the development of new housing in its grounds.
Michael Gilmour Associates are leading the design which will entail demolition of low quality 20th century extensions and conversion of disconnected Victorian outbuildings into private houses and a further five new build townhouses.
This latter element will make use of blue-grey brick basecourse with smooth white render to the main walls and zinc cladding to the upper level.
In their design statement the architects said: “The materials palette of the new build terraced houses to the eastern area of the site is intended to reflect contemporary building technology and emphasise the difference from the existing traditional buildings on site, and at the same time to be responsive to their location and context in the choice of colours and textures.”
The reduced hotel, down from 33 guest rooms, will be marketed as a 5* boutique in addition to a new bar and restaurant.
