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 contemporaries from 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 reference point, anchoring the house to its garden and providing improved outdoor living space.
