Aberdeen pub looks forward to live-in customers with latest student build
August 14 201740 student beds on the site of a former function suite serving the Brig O’Dee bar, Holburn Street.
The marriage made in heaven is situated midway between Robert Gordon University’s Garthdee campus and the city centre, with the finalised scheme also offering a sheltered garden space to the rear offering amenity for residents.
The architects wrote: “The massing and elevation treatment of the proposed development aims to create a bold contemporary addition to the existing area rather than mimicking the traditional characteristics of surrounding buildings.
“Materials have been used in a way to break up the façade and define the prominent corner block, while recessed brickwork is used to emphasize openings and compliment the proportions of the elevation.”
A materials palette of buff and dark brickwork together with copper coloured coated aluminium has been specified for the build.
