Plans have been lodged to turn a historic Aberdeen building into a house.
The proposals submitted for the category B-listed Upper Kennerty Mill in Peterculter would see the former mill transformed for the first time in around 40 years.
The conversion plans have been submitted by Annie Kenyon Architects Ltd on behalf of Chris Gavin.
A design statement included with the plans shows that some of the existing featuresof the mill site would be retained.
The report by the architect states: “The proposed conversion is sympathetic to the original building fabric, utilising the old stone walls and existing openings where possible.
“New additions to the building incorporate a simple palette of external materials including corrugated roof sheeting and timber cladding.
“There may also be opportunities to introduce some feature solid timber internally.”
A fire at the old mill in 2006 saw a number of pieces of antique machinery destroyed. The site used to be powered by a waterwheel and produced oatmeal before it was closed in the 1970s.
The design statement adds: “It is important that we learn from the traditions and reinterpret design in a contemporary way, as to not mimic. To create a design rooted in tradition but contemporary in spirit.”
It is understood the boundaries of the site will be landscaped to allow plants to age to provide screen for neighbouring properties and take away the need for fencing.
The proposals add: “The new home will be highly sustainable and super insulated with U-values well beyond those required by current building standards.
“Upper Kennerty Mill aims to provide a well-designed timeless dwelling that creates a unique sense of place, sits well in its sub-urban context and benefits from the site orientation and connection to the Culter Burn.”
