Murrayfield residential extension

Murrayfield residential extension
The brief was to design a contemporary single storey extension to an A Listed end terrace and to re-model the existing 1.5 storey laundry offshoot linking the kitchen to the new space, creating a utility room to the west, a study area within the existing link and a living area opening out to the garden and views of the Pentlands to the South.

The walls and roof to the living space have been clad in Nordic brown copper, with silvery grey larch cladding to the utility room to the north. The copper walls are formed in strong horizontal bands reflecting the stone coursing of the existing tenement and both the
copper and larch compliment the existing stone building in a new and contrasting manner.

The roof line has been kept low to avoid dominating over the existing stone and slated off-shoot, gently sloping up away from the
existing and opening up the room to the garden and views.

A large roof light sloping away from the existing building ensures that what would otherwise become a dark and overshadowed space is now flooded with natural light.
