Glenorchy Terrace, Craigmiller Conservation Area
The project was to combine the upper and lower villa to it's original state. The property was divided many years ago to form an upper and lower villa. The original stair was altered and a glass block wall was constructed on the ground floor. The small room to the front, originally known as the Telephone Room was the new hall and gave access to a new flight of stairs.
Strathearn Place, Merchiston and Greenhill Conservation Area
This garden room acts as a transition level between the low level garden with the main level of the house.
A frameless rooflight separates the new extension roof and the stone villa. The existing floor level in the kitchen was extended out under the rooflight to draw reflect light back into the kitchen. A side window catches the evening sun. The outer walls are clad with natural Larch.
Belford Mews, Dean Conservation Area and World Heritage Site.
Belford Mews is a row of red sandstone terraced cottages with mansard roofs built in the late 19th century for workers with stables below. The original stables were repurposed as garages.
The garage was converted into a kitchen dining room with French doors that opened onto the secluded leafy lane and the existing stair was extended to link the upper and lower levels. The first floor accommodation was reconfigured to extend the lounge and create stair to the loft bedroom.
St Clair Terrace, Morningside
A new garden room extension infills the gap between the outshoot and the boundary wall. The outshoot was rationalised to create a more practical utility and extend the existing kitchen storage. A glass lantern fills the space with sunlight and the bifold doors open up to blur the boundary between the patio and the internal space.
This B listed property in the Grange Conservation Area was originally the service wing to the rear of a Baronial style villa.
Any alterations to the existing fabric were made sensitively. Original features such as the glazed clerestory to the old bathroom were maintained and the old kitchen windows were increased in size but kept in proportion with the surrounding windows.
St Catherine's Terrace, The Grange Conservation Area
Alterations to this garden level lower villa included addition of a new ensuite and study and kitchen. External wall alterations to the outshoot to install full height glazing added enough floor space to add a breakfasting table.. A new modern kitchen was installed with a utility hidden to the rear.
Dalhousie Terrace, Morningside, Plewlands Conservation Area
The existing kitchen was quite remote from the garden due to the level distance between the entrance floor and the garden. The outshoot had a non sympathetic dormer added in the past. The clients wanted to convert the lower level of the outshoot into a kitchen diner so they could easily connect with the garden.
Hermitage Gardens, Morningside Conservation Area
Extensive alterations to create a modern family home
Merchiston & Greenhill Conservation Area
The brief was to design a garden office, garage and bike store, big enough for bike maintenance. The client would be looking down to his garden room from his 2nd floor flat and so we decided that this view should be as important as the view from the ground.
Lanark Road, Clinton Conservation Area
Garage conversion to create an extra bedroom. 1 and a half storey extension to provide a new built in garage with lounge area above just off the new kitchen room. The old kitchen was replaced with a large family bathroom and the old lounge has been repurposed as a bedroom. The two new bedrooms form a bedroom annex including a central TV room for the girls.
