Planning Permission for Footdee Extension

23 September 2021

Albyn Architects are pleased to have obtained planning permission for the extension and refurbishment of a 3 storey house, within the conservation area of Footdee.

The house has an amazing location, overlooking the sea, and our client wanted to take advantage of this by adding larger window openings.

We have increased the ground floor footprint to provide an open plan Kitchen/Dining/Family space, with large sliding door allowing the Family space to become a more private area. This space can also double up as a guest bedroom, where the lucky guests can perch on the window seat and watch the sunset.

On the upper levels, the rooms have been reconfigured around a new stair, creating 3 Bedrooms, an upper living area and a Family Bathroom.

The design and materials of the extension have been chosen to respect the neighbouring buildings. Maintaining the unique character of the area, while bringing the property up to modern accommodation standards, to create a stunning Family home.

Albyn Architects are now progressing with the building warrant stage of the project.

Stoneywood Extension

8 July 2021

Work has started on this single storey extension, in Stoneywood.

Only 3 weeks since work started and the builders have completed the groundworks, erected the timber kit, roof and have started fitting the insulation.

The extension will provide a multi purpose space, which can be used as a Bedroom, Playroom or a Home Office, with doors opening out into the garden. The extension also provides a Shower Room and Utility. The internal alterations will see the main open plan space rearranged, with a brand new kitchen providing a stunning focal point of the room.

Looking forward to the cladding being fitted and the internal works progressing.
