Royal Terrace

Groves-Raines Architects Studios Ltd.

Amalgamation of two A-listed properties into one at 35 Royal Terrace in Edinburgh. The new stair was the most significant alteration to the property and pivotal to the success of the project. Positioned at the heart of the house it linked two levels allowing as much light as possible into the lower ground floor level. Inspired by the work of sculptors Locky Morris and Barbara Hepworth, the conventional spiral stair plan has been twisted so that visually each tread tapers into the next creating a continuous timber surface when viewed from above.
