The existing property at 210 Braid Road was in need of general refurbishment and modification internally to suit modern family living, and to take full advantage of the stunning views across Edinburgh. An existing dilapidated conservatory and garden room were demolished, and large openings were formed within the rear wall of the original house, allowing for a large new open plan extension to accommodate a Kitchen, Dining and Family Area.

Large sections of glazing to the Dining and Family areas exploited the views, whilst a full height glazed door allowed visual transparency from the existing front door, straight through the building and out to the garden beyond.

An overhanging curved canopy which provides shelter and solar shade, is juxtaposed with a curved wall enveloping the edge of the Family Room and directing the focus of the interior out towards the spectacular views. This forms a transparent and dynamic composition viewed from the newly landscaped back garden.
