Nethermill New Housing
- Planning has been recently granted for this development at Nethemill in Aberdeenshire.
The proposal reimagines a disused mill and farm steading as a collection of new dwellings. The new homes are designed as low carbon contemporary versions of rural cottages with pitched slate roofs, timber & metal cladding, chimneys, and exposed timber outriggers and spurs, whilst benefitting from high performance glazing and open-plan internal layouts. Each of the cottages have slight variations to the positioning of glazing and cladding depending on their orientation relative to views, sunlight and prevailing wind; thus creating a sense of place and unique identity. The glazing and material composition on the gables create a activate frontage that helps create a sense of community and identity.
