LBA lodge plans for Duddingston homes
November 5 2019
The grounds of a Victorian villa off Edinburgh’s Duddingston Road West have been earmarked for eight semi-detached homes by Stone Acre and LBA.
Cairn Lodge in Duddingston currently sits within extensive gardens stretching to Meadowfield Terrace but under the plans, a strip of land to this northern edge will be ceded to three pairs of semi-detached homes, with a further single pair of homes earmarked for the southern street edge.
Each property will be finished in render punctuated by a feature window and timber panel inlay above a brick base course. This use of timber extends to the front door and integrated garages.
Detailing the chosen elevation treatment LBA wrote: “The semi-detached pairs are composed of two house types which vary in height and fenestration pattern creating a dynamic street presence. The two house types share a consistent material palette which has been selected to create a contemporary aesthetic whilst respond to the surrounding context.”
Steeply pitched slate roofs reflect the predominant style of the conservation area with each home kept below the prevailing ridge level.
