The challenge was to create ‘one of the best apartments in Edinburgh’ from two Georgian townhouses which were altered unsympathetically in the 1930s to form large properties on each of the six floors.
The original front drawing rooms were reinstated. Small things made a huge difference, such as whitened oak flooring laid in a herringbone pattern
and contrasting radiators and doors to add drama and punctuation to the grand spaces. Modern concerns about city living were addressed as part of the project – inter-connectivity, light, heating, energy and controllability. The result is new life for an A Listed New Town home.
