Domestic Alterations, Eskbank, Midlothian
A project to alter a large Victorian property to the south of Edinburgh.

An existing single storey utility area was converted into a high quality kitchen by removing the existing roof and replacing it with a continuous glazed clerestorey in satin glass around the edge of the new roof. A large window provides ample south facing views down the garden and a dark ceramic tiled floor and white kitchen units with solid timber worktop complete the minimalist but practical appearance.

The adjacent existing kitchen was turned into a large family dining room. Finishes include dark solid hardwood flooring and a dropped ceiling with low voltage lighting separated by a shadow gap detail from the walls which are painted off-white. A skylight in the new kitchen roof illuminates a serving area provided by means of a new opening between the two rooms.

More straightforward upgrading improved the family room and the attic was converted to provide a bedroom, bathroom and storage.
