Historic Aberdeenshire House in Aberdeen, Scotland by Kebony

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Article source: Kebony

A distinctive Edwardian home in north Aberdeenshire was recently given a new lease of life with the addition of an extension inspired by contemporary minimal design. Juxtaposed against the traditional hard wearing granite of the original building, the extension features Kebony cladding which introduces an element of Scandinavian design aesthetic as well as bringing with it all the benefits of resilience and durability that its technology allows. Appearing to ‘float’ in front of a stainless steel mesh, the timberwork gives the building a sense of lightness, contrasting with the solid granite of the main part of the house.

Thursday, October 1st, 2015

Article source: Simpson & Brown Architects

The new Chapel of Saint Albert the Great, in George Square, Edinburgh, built for the University Chaplaincy and friary for The Order of Preachers, the Dominican Order, was completed in late 2012. This new chapel is situated in the garden of one of the townhouses and replaces the old chapel which was located on the upper floor of the adjoining townhouses. The new garden chapel not only provides a space for peace and worship, but also increases capacity and improves accessibility. A new access was created from Middle Meadow Walk, and, along with the siting, form and appearance of the building, the chapel is announced to the many that use this popular route.
