One of many chapters
The story of this project is one of many chapters, involving a phased delivery of alterations and a contemporary extension to achieve modern living standards and provide universal access.
The clients love the setting of this rural farmhouse in Midlothian, which provides an oasis away from the city and fantastic countryside views, where they chose to raise their family. The existing property was a traditional stone farmhouse cottage, with great character but limited accommodation. This therefore had the beginnings of a fantastic home, but some upgrades were needed, as well as more space for their growing family. The design of this would also need ensure universal accessibility to address the specific needs of one family member, and would therefore involve the input of their Occupational Therapist and Environmental Health.
