Woodhall Drive

The vision for Woodhall Drive was to create contemporary and desirable family homes hallmarked by the quality of their design. Woodhall Drive has its own progressive character and is reflective of our design ethos and Glencairn’s vision for the development. It provided an exciting opportunity to create a unique and individual corner development.

The development is located on the site of a former disused single-storey pitched roof community hall in a prominent, gently sloping corner site of Juniper Green. Consisting of four, five-bedroom townhouses, each offers 1,800 sq. ft. accommodation comprising of an expansive open plan living, kitchen dining area with large areas of glazing opening onto the south facing garden. There is an open tread stair leading to the master bedroom suite with en-suite shower room.

The first floor offers a multifunctional space with a large internal sliding door opening onto the first-floor landing and void to the floor below. Adaptable as a fifth bedroom or secondary living space it includes a south facing terrace with views to the Pentland Hills. On the second floor there are three spacious double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The vertical strips of curtain wall glazing, to both front and rear elevations, visually separate each of the houses allowing natural light to penetrate the properties on all three floors. The overall form of each house is a ‘stepped block’, with the first and second floor volume offset and pushed-out to create a ‘floating’ overhang to the front elevation forming a semi-covered car parking area. The front building line of the adjacent houses has been maintained and is consistent with the existing pattern with parapet roofs incorporated to Woodhill Drive.

To the rear, the ground floor living area protrudes to create the first-floor roof terrace with frameless glass balustrades allowing uninterrupted views over the south-facing gardens. Detailing throughout is simple and crisp featuring high-quality, durable and timeless materials based on the subtle combination of dark bronze matt finished aluminium framed full-height glazing and handmade clay buff-coloured facing brickwork.
