Newport Property, Dundee House
Dundee Residential Development, East Scotland house design by Nicoll Russell Studios
17 Feb 2010
New Build Private Housing
Location: Newport, near Dundee, Eastern Scotland
This simplest of briefs was to extend an existing semidetached single storey cottage with a contemporary lounge extension.
This development of three luxury homes is located on a steep, north facing site on the banks of the River Tay with panoramic views to the north of the River and Dundee City beyond.
The two southern units are 2.5 storey Villas, each of which is arranged around a circular stair tower inspired by the form of local light houses. These units are similar in layout but fenestration is carefully ordered to take full advantage of the spectacular setting without compromising the amenity of its neighbors.
The northern unit is an adventurous four storey home which tumbles down to the shore, with generous terraces to each level and a jetty on the river bank. Large areas of glazing guarantee uninterrupted views of the river from this spectacular unit.
