Five woodland Aberdeen homes positioned as sustainable development
August 5 2020
Fitzgerald Associates and First Construction are leading efforts to build five detached homes on 4.4 acres of land off Bairds Brae in Cults, two miles from Aberdeen city centre.
Retaining an existing rubble wall and belt of mature trees the properties will be set back as far north as possible along a newly formed access road to maximise private south facing grounds.
In an accompanying statement, the studio wrote: "Our site is split to form five number dwelling plots, derived from the strong principle of retaining existing trees, aligning the five houses with a strong aspect to the south, providing good solar gain enhancing the renewables that will be provided as part of this development.
"Although using of vernacular materials such as granite and natural slate, a more contemporary approach has been taken to the overall look of the properties, the main feature being the zinc standing seam dormers on all properties providing internally an impressive outlook."
Located in the Pitfodels conservation area the grassland site is currently unused and inaccessible but surrounded by established residential areas.
