The Hawkhill tower is located on the west perimeter of Dundee’s Cultural Quarter. A single storey restaurant was demolished to make way for the first single-access core multi-storey tower in Dundee. The nine storey tower provides commercial space on the lower ground and ground floor that accommodates a restaurant business. The restaurant commands the corner of Session Street & Hawkhill and is a very popular eatery.
The site footprint was extremely tight and a design of compact flats around a single access and lift core maximised the residential potential available. The upper 7 storeys accommodate 21 two bedroom flats each with open plan living kitchen space and dedicated balconies. This living accommodation enjoys panoramic views of the city and the Tay Estuary beyond.
Located on a very tight corner site the building is finished in Trespa cladding and render. Zinc wraps around and over the corner of the building and continues down into the inside of the restaurant below.
A building of significant character this provides a suitable gateway to the access into the Cultural Quarter providing popular and high quality residential accommodation in the heart of Dundee.
