Tea Planter

Job: Tea Planter

Type: Alterations & Extension (2 Phases)

Location: Murrayfield, Edinburgh

Summary: A client who has commissioned us for two projects and successfully recommended us to several new clients.

Commissioned from writing the brief, to design, to completion and occupation.

Project 1:
To create a substantial garden room extension to the rear of the house.  Resulting in alterations and re-fitting of adjacent master bedroom, en-suite bathroom and kitchen.  Incorporating underfloor heating in the garden room with a riven Italian slate floor finish.

Project 2:
To alter and re-fit the first floor bedroom and shower room as a guest suite.

Features:  In Phase 1 several distinguishing features were created including:
● External timber boarding involved bespoke timber boards machined to differing widths and fixed to a particular pattern.  This created a subtle and pleasant variation to an otherwise very uniform board finish.
● A hardwood circular window was manufactured as a feature and fixed at a height to give a view out when seated.
● The kitchen layout incorporating marble worktops in part cut to varying widths creating visual variety and a range of practical work surfaces.  Meanwhile tiled wall finishes were a combination of alternate courses of gloss and matt wall tiles in the same colour – this to give subtle visual variation.
