Boys House - Conversion of Edzell Old School

Archid Architects Ltd

Our developer clients bought the Old School in Edzell with a view to residential conversion. The building lent itself to three good sized houses using the original separate entrances for boys and girls in the main school building and a detached house in the former gymnasium. It was decided that the houses would have different characters to suit different tastes with 'boys' being contemporary and masculine, 'girls' and 'gym' houses being more traditional and neutral. Boys house has a dynamic double height dining room and mezzanine floor over leading to two bedrooms. All three houses sold very quickly despite challenging market conditions.
