Tillydrone affordable housing push extended by further 34 homes
May 29 2018
Halliday Fraser Munro Architects have brought forward plans for a second phase of affordable housing off Aberdeen’s St Machar Drive, with a further block of 34 flats joining 138 previously consented homes.
Brought forward by Robertson Partnership Homes, Hillcrest Housing Association and First Endeavour the latest scheme seeks to both extend the frontage and create a bookend to Harris Drive with key corners expressed through parapet detailing.
Outlining their approach the architects wrote: “We have visually broken down the elevation facing Harris drive by pushing forward the prominent feature gable and expressing this element with a higher ‘tower’ parapet detailing. At set back areas, to the top storey we have used a metal standing seam cladding to visually reduce the height. This has created elevations which visually vary in scale and height with the use of different materials.”
Principal elevations are emphasised through use of varying coloured brick with stair cores and main entrances expressed in metal standing seam.
