“The LBA team has clearly defined our vision. The townhouses offer the highest quality contemporary design-led build and layout that’s innovative yet sympathetic to the surrounding architecture and environment.”
Daryl Teague, Glencairn Properties
These three townhouses capture the essence of rural living whilst only 15 minutes from Edinburgh’s city centre. The concept behind the development was driven by the three-bay existing steel frame, timber clad and crinkly tin roof argricultural shed that stood on the the site originally. The reimagined, contemporary design for each property includes a fully glazed courtyard that have been cored out of the form to create lightwells and external spaces for the properties to open up onto.
With bedrooms on the ground floor, the open plan living on the first floor extends the entire length of the dwelling with views across open fields towards the historic Liberton Tower and the Royal Observatory. At night the development comes to life as the timber ‘Hit and Miss’ cladding, which during the day proivides privacy, revaeals glimpses of the life and activity within.
