  • We were challenged to create ‘one of the best apartments in Edinburgh’ – no mean feat. The starting point wasn’t easy; two Georgian town houses which were altered unsympathetically in the 1930s to form large properties on each of the six floors.

    One of our key priorities was to reinstate the original front drawing rooms; now a kitchen/dining room and a drawing room – the scale of the whole apartment is something else. By employing subtle details (whitened oak flooring laid in a herringbone pattern and contrasting radiators and doors) we added drama and punctuation to the grand spaces.

    Modern concerns for city living were all addressed as part of the project; inter-connectivity, light, heating, energy and controllability. The end result breaths new life into this Grade A listed New Town home.
