The new garden room at 4 Gardiner Road replaces a previous dilapidated conservatory on this Arts and Crafts semi in Edinburgh’s suburbs.

A feature of the design is the stainless steel-clad fin wall to the boundary, which disguises an ugly extension on the neighbour’s property. The height of the room was determined by the existing sash and case windows, now internal, which the client wished to retain unaltered. This has resulted in a high, light, airy space.

The design is a simple box, with Iroko sliding doors on two sides to the garden. The roof is nominally flat, of structural glazing, with a slight fall to a new valley gutter at the house wall, to keep the edges of the structure clean and uncluttered. Excessive solar gain is avoided by the north-west orientation and a solar film on the glass.

At night, light is provided by low wall-mounted downlighters shining onto the oak floor, which with additional external feature lighting, limits reflections on the glass and permits views to the mature walled garden.
