Contemporary infill to complete Inverness street
July 20 2018
A disused Inverness office block has been earmarked for 16 serviced apartments as part of a redevelopment and extension spearheaded by HRI Munro Architecture.
The project will see conversion of the B-listed Ross House on Ardross Street to form eight serviced apartments, with a further eight being built in an adjoining build to ‘complete the street’.
Outlining their approach the architects noted: “The overall mass relates directly to available site width, the requirement for a deep plan, elevational and façade modifications, mid plan articulation and set back detailing to mark common stair and lift zone and a setback top floor with contrasting materials and large glazed area to further minimize its impact.
“We believe there is an opportunity here for a carefully designed contemporary building; a 21st century contribution to Ardross Street, infilling its only gap site and thus completing the street.”
Finished in sandstone cladding below a zinc clad upper level the scheme includes stairwell fins, glazed balconies and louvres to windows.
