New House, Eskbank

client private
contract value £280,000
area new build 110 sq. m.

A speculative house for a small town-centre site in Eskbank near Edinburgh, this has a simple plan with three bedrooms, two reception rooms and a large hall containing stairs and a seating area upstairs. There was considerable local opposition to a house being built on this site, and the original L-shaped plan with stepped elevations and an overhanging roof had to be scaled down and simplified several times. It was only after protracted and delicate negotiations between Halvorsen Architects and planners that the house was approved.

The external materials are off-white self-coloured render and timber-cladding painted grey to blend in with surrounding sandstone buildings. The roof is slate to also match those of the surrounding houses.
