Lauder Road, Edinburgh, Improvements and Alterations to stone villa

New Kitchen, Bathroom and Garden Access Window to a Stone Villa


A detached stone villa in the Grange Conservation Area. The three storey building had been extended to the rear in the 1920’s with a 2 story brick extension, used at one time as a private school. This extension was completely un-insulated.

The brief was to form a new kitchen and bathrooms and carry out general replacement of wiring and heating systems and the installation of new data and TV wiring without damaging existing floors or cornices.

For the 1920’s extension walls and the roof were stripped and insulated. A dramatic new opening was created from the Family Room to the garden.
