Morningside Road Property
Design: Sutherland Hussey Architects
Morningside Road, Edinburgh
Sutherland Hussey Architects, working with a private developer, has designed 11 apartments and 1 retail unit in Morningside, Edinburgh.
The unit arrangement steps and interlocks in plan and section around a single internal vertical circulation system to create 10 stunning dual aspect apartments with living areas over 4m in height.
With 180 degree aspect to the South of the City, a single unit is created on the upper floor with private terrace and winter garden.
At the rear a new garden will be created with a timber facade as backdrop where as the street facade is proposed to be a polished stone skin. Both wrap a concrete structure designed by David Narro Associates to cantilever over an existing culverted burn.
The design, developed to stage D is intended to be a dramatic yet respectful modern insertion into the existing Victorian street wall.
