The White House

The White House
In February 2011 the restoration of this Category B listed art deco former roadhouse in Craigmillar, Edinburgh was completed . The works were joint funded by Historic Scotland, the Town Centre Regeneration Fund and PARC Craigmillar. It forms a key element of the wider Craigmillar community regeneration currently being undertaken by PARC.

Built in 1936 the building was operational until the early part of this century when it became nearly derelict following years of neglect and a number of vandalism attacks. This resulted in its "at risk" status on the Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland.

The works not only restored the shell, but improved the performance of key elements such as the roof and windows. Careful research and analysis was undertaken on areas such as the render to ensure that restoration and repairs employed traditional materials and methods where possible.

The interior was completely restored and key historic features such as the stair and cornices were repaired and reinstated. This resulted in the building returning to its original aesthetic and once more contributing positively to the community of Craigmillar.
