Ford House

Designing a flexible and major extension to provide for independent living to an unspoilt Grade A Listed Building is not a simple task.

Ford, Midlothian

Full Description

This was achieved by adding a glazed back porch to link in with existing sheds, and using these as a link to a low, large, single storey building incorporated into an existing garden wall.

The new building pivots around a living room larger than any space in the original building, with a Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom, etc. off it.  This main room provides a new focus for the garden and enjoys views on both sides.  Although of contemporary construction, the new room has walls with a feeling of thickness and a beautiful vaulted ceiling.
