This house occupies a spectacular site between the Water of Leith to the south and the Royal Botanic Gardens to the north. The main emphasis of the project was to re-orientate the house to its private garden to the south and to the spectacular views over Edinburgh’s New Town.

A series of small service rooms to the rear of the house were opened up to create a dramatic L-shaped living space with a direct relationship to the garden. At first floor level the former maid’s room was replaced with a crisply detailed timber box as the master bedroom. A simple shift to this box affords it a view over the Botanic Gardens as well as to Edinburgh Castle to the south.
