Hope Homes have taken inspiration from Scottish domestic architecture of the late 17th to the mid-19th century to create their latest development, Chapelton, in the thriving seaside town of Seamill, West Kilbride.
125 two, three, four and five bedroomed period-style properties are being built from natural materials such as slate, sandstone and larch.
A key challenge was to specify slates which offer uniformity in finished appearance but meet the needs of varying roof pitches.
For example, the five bedroomed Admiral property is built to a typical Georgian design which has a shallower pitch and required a larger slate than the single storey cottages and other house types.
SIGA’s sizing options were able to facilitate each specification, providing aesthetic uniformity.
SIGA 67ATG slates in two sizes have been specified to complete the roofs to these contemporary homes which have been designed with traditional style and kerb appeal in mind.
Anna Hope, Director, of Hope Homes said, “Chapelton is a greenfield development, so at the planning stage, we offered a natural slate finish to all 11 house styles for three reasons. SIGA 67ATG is authentic, complies with Building Regulations and is popular with potential house buyers.
