Zone Architects have completed a refurbishment and addition to a house on Station Road in South Queensferry. One of a series of nineteenth century stone villas built to take advantage of spectacular views over the Forth Bridge, the house suffered, like many of its period from a poor kitchen and service facilities and the lack of a connection to its garden.

This addition resolves both these issues. A spectacular new room to the side of the existing house accommodates the new cooking and dining rooms. Skewed to align with the Forth Bridge and with a dramatic exposed timber roof structure the new building has been designed to embrace the scale of the Firth. A new terrace forms a datum, anchoring the house to its garden and providing improved outdoor living space.
