Plans have been submitted for 138 affordable urban homes in four blocks of up to six storeys at St Machar Road, Aberdeen. The proposals have been put forward by Robertson Partnership Homes and Grampian Housing Association.
The scheme will offer private south facing courtyards, include public open space and a tree-lined avenue connecting to a new floodlit games area.
It is designed to offer strong street frontages and screen homes from neighbouring industrial land.
Architects Halliday Fraser Munro explained: “We have looked at several options and layouts to visually break long elevations into smaller widths with pushing forward prominent feature gables and expressing these elements with higher ‘tower’ parapet detailing.
Each block will be faced in a mix of buff brick and metal standing seam.
