Description

Dating from the late-19th/early-20th century, 11 and 11A Dee Street is a three-storey and attic, three-bay shop and tenement building. It is constructed in squared and rusticated granite blocks with distinctive Beaux Arts-style terracotta decoration.

The street (southwest) elevation has a plate-glazed shop front and a separate entrance opening to the right. The second and third floors have arched windows with decorative keystones, and highly decorative string courses, which are broken by the window openings. Flanking the windows are carved roundels, most with carved heads. The windows are a multi-pane upper sash over a single pane. The third floor windows have advanced aprons decorated with painted terracotta friezes and on pairs of corbels. The Mansard roof is slated with end chimneystacks and there are three pedimented dormer windows. That to the centre has a segmental arched pediment and the flanking dormers have triangular pediments.

Statement of Interest

The decorative terracotta architectural detailing is unusual for a building of this type of in Aberdeen.

The exact date of 11 and 11A Dee Street is not currently known and historic maps are conflicting. The 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey map (revised 1899-1900) shows the building's current H-shaped plan form. However, Aberdeen town plans of 1902 and 1915 do not show a building here at this time. The 3rd Edition Ordnance Survey map (revised 1924) depicts the building.
