Wedge workshop & studio to bookend Lower Largo
January 26 2022
Housing an open plan workshop or garage on the ground floor the property rises via a top-lit stair at the rear to a studio gallery and a sheltered roof terrace above, offering elevated views across Largo Bay.
In a statement, the practice told Urban Realm: "The site previously contained a small garage with a prior consent to erect a traditional 1½ storey new build property. Our proposal retained the established footprint but pushed the envelope vertically to generate additional floor space, with a roof terrace providing uninterrupted panoramic South facing views over the Forth towards East Lothian.
"Designed as a simple contemporary form, the building will be a bookend to the eastern edge of the village and a gateway to the section of the Fife Coastal Path linking Lower Largo to Shell Bay and Elie."
Bookending the eastern extent of the village the development comprises a robust plinth of light grey brick with metal cladding to the upper levels with inset features formed from vertical treated hardwood.
