Garden terrace to rise at B-listed Aberdeen villa
December 1 2021
A B-listed villa in Aberdeen is the focus of efforts to deliver a collection of four terraced townhouses alternating between three and two storeys within its elongated garden.
Recently renovated to provide office accommodation the villa includes an eighties-era rear extension and car park which are now surplus to requirements and will be demolished to make way for the build. A granite coach house will also be refurbished to provide a fifth home accessible from Albyn Lane.
The terrace sits 18m from the rear of the listed building with northern and southern elevations faced in granite with matching grey multi-brick for the side elevations. Each home will overlook private gardens and communal amenity space.
In a project statement, Fouin+Bell Architects wrote: "This proposal is to demolish the existing rear extension, create a garden and form four terraced houses providing modern residential accommodation in the vast space between the villa and its coach-house on Albyn Lane. The area between the buildings was originally a very large formal garden for the listed villa which included a central linear glasshouse, such a garden is no longer appropriate for its current and future use as office space."
A pedestrian route to Albyn Place will be built as part of the work.
