Bard motor ahead with Windyhill planning consent
March 23 2017
Supplanting a 1980’s vintage garage the new car-port has been designed with a lower profile to sit more comfortably alongside the seminal home, built by Mackintosh between 1900 and 1901 on behalf of merchant William Davidson.
Now valued at £3m the property remains largely unaltered from its turn of the century heyday, with many of its fixtures and fittings carefully restored and still in use as Mackintosh intended.
Project architect Ruairidh Moir said: “The proposed new building seeks to draw influence from Mackintosh's intentions and inspirations for the creation of Windyhill. It is a contemporary addition, adapting the house to the requirements of 21st century living, which cannot be confused with the original fabric but which sits adjacent with a meaningful dialogue with the house.”
The ribbed steel enclosure will be enclosed with translucent glass panels rising from a masonry base course matching adjacent boundary walls.
Detailed design work is now underway with construction expected in the near future.
