Aberdeen wine bar paves the way for more flats
August 7 2017repurpose a granite Aberdeen terrace to house a wine bar, private tasting room and flats has been tabled by architects Cumming and Co, with the intention of overhauling the existing space and adding a new build extension.
This would allow four flats to be included by utilizing a parcel of land off Union Glen, presently occupied by a two-storey granite building, with a modern granite and timber clad addition overlooking a small private garden.
Outlining their approach to the new build element the architects wrote: “The proposed extension massing is dictated by the restrictive site nature and boundary constraints. The massing of the extension is broken up by the recessed and protruding façade pattern. The introduction of two cladding materials helps to break up the solid form and the variance in material colours allows an interesting visual contrast.”
Work to the existing Malt Mill bar would see original window openings reinstated together with removal of superfluous bar equipment, ventilation and drainage from the Union Glen façade with large contemporary panes of glass and timber serving as a main entrance off Holborn Street.
