Rich textures offset the moody tones of this private build in the ‘granite city’ of Aberdeen. Fiddes Architects were commissioned to renovate the large, stone built property, refitting the interior and adding a modern extension housing open plan living, kitchen and dining spaces.

The solution is a contemporary addition to the original building – with zinc standing seam and black coated timber cladding providing a counterpoint to the grey granite traditional to Aberdeen. The client selected Russwood Siberian larch (SILA®) which was coated with RAL 9005, an opaque jet black. Boards were laid with a 5mm shadow gap, adding further definition to the clean lines of the extension.

Internally, the clients wanted new flooring that flowed throughout the ground floor, tying together the existing footprint with the new extension. Russwood oak flooring creates a warm, tactile aesthetic, while the hand scraped, smoked ebony finish echoes the deep hues of the exterior. The floorboards were expertly mitred on site to create seamless steps leading from the kitchen to the main hallway.

Eoghain Fiddes said: “Russwood were excellent to deal with as always! I can’t praise them highly enough. We regularly specify Russwood products for our projects and we set out our opening dimensions to fit in with Russwood’s profiles. The Technical team are always very helpful.”
