Arts Studio, Morningside, Edinburgh

This little extension was designed to sit on a small triangular strip of land to the side of a lower villa in Edinburgh's Morningside. Primarily it contains and arts studio for the client but it also forms a new entrance giving the property a 'front facade' and an increased presence when approached.

There is also a spacious and bright entrance hall and a shower room within. Ample glazing connect the internal spaces with the front and rear gardens, the original stone walls are exposed internally and externally a simple palette of graphite grey eternit panels and grey render makes the extension a contrasting, contemporary addition to the existing Victorian House.
