Planners dwell upon Dundee farm steading conversion
March 14 2017conversion and extension of a former farm steading at Mains of Balgay, Dundee, to form five family homes.
This work will see most of the existing farm structures retained, converted and extended for their new use with new build elements clad in brick with photovoltaic panels installed on south facing roofs.
Offering south facing private gardens the scheme will retain the traditional stone walls and slate roof of existing properties with existing openings in a boundary wall infilled with matching stone.
In their design statement the architects observed: “The site layout, as seen above, clearly re-imagines the former farm steading with the retention of the barn on the west and the provision of the new housing completing the north wing and the new cottage turning the corner in the south-east, all creating this new sunny, sense of place.”
Parking for 15 vehicles will be provided across the site.
