‘Sensitive’ proposal seeks to overcome Dunkeld gap-site impasse
October 26 2018
Robin Baker Architects are set to rejuvenate the Perthshire town of Dunkeld with plans to create a mixed retail and residential build within the conservation area.
Plans submitted to Perth & Kinross Council call for the creation of two shop units with a four-bedroom flat above on a long disused parcel of land opposite the B-listed Royal Dunkeld Hotel.
Outlining the vision the architects wrote: “Much care has been taken to respect the scale and proportions of the existing two storey buildings along Atholl Street, and to be sensitive to the historic area by proposing similar materials and detailing of the street facades and shop fronts.
“Further design development and details can be provided to meet the required high standard and we request that the council engage in discussion towards this objective instead of placing a blanket ban on any development and refusing a request to meet to discuss the development.”
String courses and eaves mouldings have been specified in stone to respect the current character of Atholl Street.
