A new extension added to this lovely family home in the heart of one of Edinburgh’s neighbourhoods has transformed this building. The house is detached and set in a spacious garden. The original kitchen faced north, with no link to the back garden. The offshoot was ramshackle and accommodated a series of unheated spaces (mainly stores). This was demolished and a simple & elegant extension added.
The new space is connected to the existing kitchen, to create a light and airy family room. This opens out to the garden. To the side, and using dead space up to the boundary, is a back door and a cloaks space, with a small utility off.
The new structure is simple in form, with a low pitch roof clad in zinc. There is an interesting asymmetric exposed roof structure and big apex roof-lights.
The build was executed really well, the end result is fresh & unpretentious, and the house is transformed.
