This is a new villa in a conservation area just west of Edinburgh’s city centre. The site was an undeveloped plot within an area of grand villas laid out in the early 1900s. ZONE Architects’ ambition was to create a contemporary home which matched the scale and grandeur of its neighbours, particularly the late-Victorian villa to the west. Sited with an open, semi-public front garden which directly addresses the street, the building creates a meaningful relationship with both its immediate neighbours and the wider locale.
Walnut, glass stairs, frame glass balustrade.
Sandstone, timber windows.
