Project Details—

5 Melville Crescent is a very smart collection of A Listed townhouses.  There are only 4 of these unique and identical properties on the Crescent. LBA were appointed from inception through to completion to convert this property into 5 luxury dwellings. 

The proposals include 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, with the upper apartment including a fantastic roof terrace and mezzanine level with views of the castle. The lower ground floor apartment includes a contemporary and sympathetic garden extension to the rear of the new contemporary kitchen and dining area. This is constructed in ashlar stone with floor to ceiling glazing, allowing East light to penetrate the kitchen. 

Internal alterations  have been kept to a minimum in order to safeguard and preserve the existing listed interiors. Any new additions or alterations are clearly defined as new and contemporary and have been carefully detailed to allow the character of the spaces to remain as existing. 

Architect’s insight—

This stunning development was the first project with this client and their first development in Edinburgh. We were also appointed to design the interior finishes, from the bespoke cabinetery and ironmongery, through to the colour palettes and finishes throughout. This has allowed us to work closely wit the client and produce a stylish and desirable finished product that will surpass the current markets expectations.
