Tipperlinn Road - a new house

September 20, 2017

We thought it might be interesting to create a blog post on the web site charting the construction of a new house we are building that has been designed by Richard Murphy Architects. The house is in the Morningside area of Edinburgh.

 

The idea is to take the project from start to completion updating regularly and detailing the whole building process. In this case the project started on site in January 2017 so initially the blog needs to catch up.

 The new house is largely concealed from the street behind an existing traditional stone wall which had to be partially demolished to allow the construction work and then rebuilt to match the original.

The house is of a single storey construction built around a central courtyard. It has three bedrooms and all rooms look out onto the courtyard.

Access is via the original garden gate with a new driveway entrance cut through the stone wall on the lane to the side.

 

The clients sold their house but retained a portion of that house's garden to make the site for the new house. This can be seen in the architects plan drawing above.

The rear wall of the new house will be rendered white to match the original house and forms the boundary between both properties. 

From the plan it can also be seen that there is a second smaller courtyard to the right as you enter the pedestrian gate on Tipperlinn Road.
