House Extension for Mr & Mrs Høgel, (later slightly redeveloped for Richard Murphy).
Disused 1820s stable block latterly used as a garage.

RIBA Award 1996

The build cost for this house on Royal Terrace Mews was approximately £95k

Across the ‘road’ (south-west) a similar redevelopment has been completed (2004) for a well-known American Client of Richard Murphy’s.

According to the architects, ‘this former 1820’s stable and hayloft, unlike many Edinburgh mews properties, had not yet been converted to residential use when we were commissioned to convert it into a one bedroom flat for rent. The conversion is meant to express the idea of a new house found within the repaired shell of the existing stable so that the history of the building is expressed, particularly on the front façade.

To obtain planning permission a garage was required so the majority of living accommodation is found at first floor level. To accommodate this the original first floor level was lowered and this is expressed, on the front elevation, in a steel channel which also forms the runner for the garage door.’
