This new family house is in a residential area on the west of Edinburgh’s city centre.

The site has been created from a portion of garden of an existing listed Victorian detached house.

The proposal by zone architects was for a new sandstone villa which aimed to be at least as good as its Victorian neighbours but with a contemporary character. The new house terminates a terrace of semi-detached Victorian villas. It deliberately relates to the two storey stone solidity of this terrace while the corner entrance and receding roof terrace set the building apart as an individual composition. The character is achieved through carefully considered and contemporary detailing of conventional materials – stone, timber, glass, The house is a timber-framed structure with timber and sandstone cladding.

Internally, the flexible layout aimed to meet the requirements of family life whilst forming a strong relationship of the interior to both the front and rear gardens. Parents have a spacious master bedroom suite on the second floor with a south-facing terrace giving private sun space. The ground floor has a suite of three reception rooms and a study, kitchen and utility room. The first floor has four family bedrooms.
