West Annandale Street
2010 / Bellevue Edinburgh
A house and office for Tim Bayman Architecture
The property comprises a ground floor and basement with one additional ground floor room falling within the curtilage of an adjacent tennement block. Originally a shop and built at the same time as its neighbouring victorian era tennement, the property was converted to residential use in 1984.
The proposed alterations focus on two main aspects: Changing the front portion of the roof to a pitched standing seam roof, allowing light into the basement and a mezzanine floor over the resulting lightwell. And the replacement of the 1980s residential infill to the front facade with a modern composition more reminiscent of the buildings previous comercial use. Etched glass will be used to maintain privacy at street level. In addition to these main chages we are also proposing a new rooflight centrally located in the plan & a woodburning stove.
The building was completed in 2011.
