The Nether Abbey Apartments form an attractive single block, providing six flats of varying sizes, set in landscaped gardens in the picturesque seaside town of North Berwick.
The Nether Abbey Hotel proprietor approached Cooper Cromar to design a building which would sit comfortably within the existing streetscape, in terms of urban scale, and deliver the highest density without detriment to the adjacent hotel function.
The solution visually appears to be a large single detached house but with subtle division into six flats, three of which have grade access and private gardens.
Design and materials reflect those used by the Scottish architect Sir Robert Stodart Lorimer, with a mixture of gable ended roofs and exposed chimney stack detailing.
By combining contemporary features and elements of traditional house styles the building compliments its surroundings whilst offering all the advantages of a newly built home.
