The site is located on the former Viewfield hotel grounds in a residential area in Arbroath.
The scheme is designed around the existing hotel building which will be stripped back to its original form by removing all the miscellaneous extensions that were added over the years. The existing house is expanded to the North by continuing the existing roof line to fit in with the main building.
New two storey blocks align with the existing building and address the principal street frontage of Arbirlot road, whilst a three storey block is placed at the corner junction of Arbirlot and Viewfield roads creating a strong urban statement whilst tying in the with height of the existing building.
This creates small courtyard spaces between the main buildings and behind a curved stone boundary wall resulting in a contemporary development that will complement its surroundings and will feel more like smaller individual homes.
