Dundee factory to make way for homes in housing push
Hiddleston & Feist Architects have brought forward plans to demolish a vacant factory building on Fairmuir Road, Dundee, to create two detached and six semi-detached houses.

The Baltic Works will be replaced by new homes arranged to form a clearly defined street frontage with living spaces positioned on the upper floor to maximise views.

In their design statement the practice said: “The buildings present a varied storey and a half and two storey frontage to the street and accordingly are of a scale which is appropriate to the character of the surrounding area.

“Materials have been carefully selected from a limited palette of natural materials. The dominant use of timber reflects the desire to reduce the embodied energy of the proposal and offer textural richness and visual interest. The design detailing seeks to achieve a clean contemporary feel.”

Rear gardens occupy sloping ground a half level above the entrance and a half level below upstairs living spaces.
