Doomed Aberdeen workshop earmarked for ‘saw-tooth’ homes
June 15 2018
David Murray Associates have resubmitted plans for an infill residential development in Aberdeen replacing a disused garage with twin duplex apartments.
The Merkland Lane site provides rear access to neighbouring tenements and will be cleared to create two self-contained apartments each with their own front door and garden. Living accommodation will be pushed up to the first floor to provide a more open aspect.
In a statementthe architects wrote: “The scale of the proposals is 2-storey with a pitched roof. The roof is pitched in the direction perpendicular to the road to create a ‘saw-tooth’ effect. This has the impact of creating an interesting and contrasting roofline, reinforcing the scheme’s deliberately contemporary aspirations in relation to its more traditional surroundings.”
The mews style homes will each benefit from a private south facing balcony, maximizing outdoor space on the compact footprint.
