Flats plan submitted for Aberdeen church hall

Rosemount Place 2Plans have been lodged with Aberdeen City Council to demolish a church hall to make way for 20 new apartments.

The existing building at 116 Rosemount Place, which consists of a dental surgery on the ground floor, an office on the first floor and a health spa to the rear, is to be altered and extended as an extension of the existing flats at the neighbouring Rutherford Church.

Outlining their design approach, Neil Rothnie Architects said: “The overall approach has been to retain the main walls in order that the appearance of the building from the street remains the same. High quality materials are to be used throughout with subtle details such as style and colour of windows, infilling of the front wall and continuation of railings to match the adjoining building.

“The northernmost part of the building to the lane at the lower level is to be rebuilt in a vertical timber cladding to create the effect of a small back lane garage and fence. Above this the building is finished in a vertical zinc cladding which will give it ‘lightness’.”
