The Point’s design features floor to ceiling glazing, a stunning double-height atrium style reception and roof terraces with panoramic views. It also benefits from an enviable number of parking spaces, both on and off site. In addition, Aberdeen’s main bus and rail stations are both within a short walk. All these contribute to make The Point Aberdeen’s landmark office development.
The office space at the The Point is the perfect combination of design and usability. This development unites the 19th century design of The Triple Kirks site and its famous spire with 21st century building techniques and facilities. The project celebrates both Aberdeen’s past and present, helping to revitalise the city by bringing businesses back into the centre and create a real business heart in Aberdeen.
Opened in 1843. The Triple Kirks site was originally a grouping of 3 Disruption Churches. Only the East church now survives, with the remainder of the site lying derelict since the 1970’s. At the heart of the three churches was the spire, this has remained a prominent feature on the Aberdeen skyline and will be an essential part of The Point office space development. The spire stands out due to its red brick construction in a city famous for its granite buildings.
Surrounding buildings to the South, tend to be tall, narrow buildings on smaller plots. In order to sympathetically merge the development with the surrounding buildings, The Point office space has been broken down into four distinct blocks that correspond to the building widths on Belmont Street.
The granite cladding, reflects the nature of the predominantly granite surrounding buildings. Where necessary to ensure visibility of the spire these granite blocks and been dissected exposing glass extrusions. These glass boxes will allow views through the building and office space to the spire as well as reflecting the mature Union Terrace Gardens.
Designed by local architect Archibald Simpson and boasting Historic Scotland Grade A listing status, the spire forms the centre piece of The Point office space and will continue to be a landmark in Aberdeen’ skyline. The spire will be fully refurbished by specialist contractors as part of The Point office space development. On completion the Spire will provide the Point with identity and character.
All remedial works, which are largely aesthetic, have been approved by Historic Scotland and a full institutional collateral warranty will be available from a global structural engineering firm.
