The project brief was to create a dynamic and dramatic office space for a new division of a company with varied interests and businesses. Since the client had rented this space for a short term lease, the solution had to be a minimum investment on “fixed interiors” with maximum focus on elements that could be moved to another location and reused in future.

Solen vinklar in Edinburgh, Scotland by David Blaikie Architects

 
April 7th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: David Blaikie Architects

Background

Our clients have a strong affinity with Scandinavia – Mrs Penman is Swedish. Their children are being brought up bilingually.

Buying their first house together in Blackhall made a lot of sense with a family on the horizon and while the houses can be a little cramped there is always room for expansion. This 68M2, semi-detached single storey house is very typical of the suburban housing stock in this and many other areas of Edinburgh.  This house has the benefit of a 50M long back garden to provide the setting for a dramatic addition to provide a light filled space for a young family to grow up in.   At briefing stage, their storey board lent heavily on contemporary Scandinavian architecture – a route natural to us.
