Flat alterations in the New Town1990-1992
This grade A-listed New Town flat had elegant public rooms, but the utilitarian rooms were small, and poor in both function and appearance. The kitchen is located at an internal corner, with a mass of services running through it, so the walls and ceiling were shaped to conceal these and to make the room feel as open and bright as possible, while providing increased workspace and storage. The existing flagstones were retained on the floor. The bathroom was extended, using what had been storage space, and separate toilet added to improve the usability and value of the property.
