This property is situated on one of Dalkeith’s
most well-known streets with plenty of passing
pedestrians, cyclists and cars.
It was decided to incorporate this dynamic
sense of place into the design of the home by
inviting the activity into the living spaces.
Externally, the northern fishpond creates
an aspect for peaceful reflection from the
kitchen and meals area, creating an element
of calm and tranquillity within the most active
area of the home.
Extensive northern floor-to-ceiling glazing
connects with the garden while providing deep
winter sun penetration into the living areas.
Inside, the extensive use of cabinetwork
to define zones reduces the extent of internal
brickwork, generating lightness of space. Northern
light and American oak cabinetry creates warmth
in the kitchen and meals area, in contrast to
Caesarstone benchtops and stone floors.
The home features a simple palette of materials
utilising Spanish limestone, oak, clear anodised
aluminium, and off-white paint throughout.
The result creates an understated yet inviting
home that strikes the perfect balance between rest
