New House Edinburgh : Findhorn Place

Findhorn Place, south Edinburgh – design by Oliver Chapman Architects

The Grange House

Findhorn Place

Design: Oliver Chapman Architects

Professor Glen and Dr Alison Bramley wanted to sit in their south facing garden for as much of the year as possible.

Oliver Chapman Architects design them a large corner window seat that projects onto a terrace below a projecting horizontal roof. The seat has glazing on three sides and lets you look out across the garden.

Floating from inside to outside with an almost invisible line of glass between the two, the metal covered roof is held in a steel frame that allows it to cantilever at the corners. Only one pair of columns and fixings into the brickwork around the sides is the means of supporting it. The line of the columns and beam presents a formal elevation to the south west facing garden.

A rooflight runs the whole length of the extension where the new roof meets the old stone wall, This visually separates the ‘old’ from the ‘new’.

Stack-bonded grey bricks and black stained timber window frames help to make the walls visually recede and highlights the lightweight quality of the roof.
