A new 3-storey villa with a basement in the heart of the Grange in Edinburgh. The new contemporary white rendered villa, with contrasting planes of zinc, relates to a similar 1930’s villa nearby and takes advantage of the south facing slope with the cricket ground to its fore and Blackford Hill beyond. The house, for a young family, is formed around social spaces articulated by this sunny view. A double height hall and reception room forms the heart of the plan with family spaces and circulation working off this. Bedrooms are on the upper levels culminating in a viewing room onto a large roof terrace at the top.
Malcolm Fraser Architects designed the house up to Planning stage with Lucy Miller as the project architect. Lucy has subsequently continued the detailed design as a partner in kalm architecture. Completed Summer 2011.
