Edinburgh bungalow nominated for small project award
The renovation and refurbishment of a 1960’s bungalow near Roslin, Edinburgh, has earned its architects a place in the line up for the Edinburgh Architectural Association’s Small Project Awards 2011.

Reiach and Hall are the hands behind the work which brought the dilapidated structure into the 21st century whilst retaining its modernist chic.

Working with the existing plan the architects have focussed their efforts on uninsulated walls, poor glazing and a roof which was in bad shape. The result is a super insulated and airtight carbon conscious home.

A Reiach & Hall spokesperson said: “We have attempted to create an exemplary building, pure in form and appearance and with an emphasis on natural light.

“Full window walls on the ground floor enhance the openness of the plan arrangement and engage with the garden ground, while bedrooms are located on a new first floor, all orientated to benefit from a southerly aspect and take advantage of the fine views.”

The engineer on the project was KJ Tait.
