We enjoy the challenge of creating modern solutions to existing buildings with contemporary architectural features, such as vertical 'side' dormers to follow the sun's path.
D2 obtained planning permission for this modern contemporary five bedroom home in the west end of Edinburgh located within a secluded site in an established nature conservation area. The proposed dwelling also straddled a green belt boundary line which essentially resulted in half of the accommodation being located within the green belt and half outwith.
The client's early 20th century cottage boasted an expansive amount of garden ground to the rear of the property. The brief for this project was simply to endeavour to bring the outside……in!
With the rear of the property facing due south and with no neighbouring properties to this side, the site offered a generous amount of natural daylight exposure.
The clients brief for this project was to increase the Kitchen space and open up the rear of the existing accommodation to incoporate an open plan living/Dining space. This project consisted of a rear extension the full width of the clients property to incorporate the new Living, Kitchen, Dining space with increased utility room provision off the Kitchen area. The design incorporated a state of the art bifold door system and an internal vaulted roof structure to increase the height of the internal space.
The client's bungalow contained an existing small galley kitchen/dining arrangement and the brief fore this project was simply to extend to create a large open plan Kitchen, Living and Dining Area.
This project involved the substantial demolition of numerous single storey rear sections to an early 1900's residential property in Midlothian. D2 were engaged to design a modern split level extension to incorporate a new open plan Kitchen/Dining space with raised living space benefiting from the panoromic views of the garden. The additional accommodation also incuded a Boiler/Utility room, Shower Room and integral double Garage. The design incorporated the use of high quality modern material finishes to offer a direct contrast to that of the existing traditional from of the main house.
D2 were engaged to design additional living accomodation for the clients expanding young family. The proposals consisted of the construction of a single storey rear extension to incorporate a new living space. This space was complimented by an internal vaulted ceiling structure with intergal roof windows which in turn contributed to an increased level of natural daylight being abosrbed into the space, as well as giving the internal space a sense of increased area.

The proposals consisted of the construction of a single storey rear extension to incorporate a new living space. This space was complimented by an internal vaulted ceiling structure with integral roof windows which in turn contributed to an increased level of natural daylight being absorbed into the space, as well as giving the internal space a sense of increased area.
This project incorporated the removal of a small box/galley kitchen extension to a former mining cottage in Midlothian. Whilst having adequate bedroom provision as a result of a former attic conversion, the property lacked adequate living space to compliment the increased accommodation. D2 were engaged to design an extension to the rear of the house to incorporate a new open plan Kitchen, Dining and Living space. The works incorporated the removal of a large section of the existing external wall to form an open plan link between the Living and Dining space.
