When it comes to creating a flawless blend between the contemporary and the traditional the devil is in the detail. At a handsome family home in Edinburgh’s Morningside district our experience helped us shape a modern extension/dining area that perfectly complemented the 19th century building in which it was set.
The home owners were keen to develop a large, light space and architects Roxburgh McEwan designed a glass-fronted extension incorporating an extended family kitchen and a dining area suitable for up to 16 people.
Our task was to bring that area to life. But that wasn’t all. To complete the room we were invited to design and create a substantial dining table influenced by George Nakashima, along with 16 chairs. And our client’s plans also included the building of a wine cellar to house the family’s large and much-cherished collection.
Built from scratch, the temperature-controlled cellar featured fittings in solid European oak, slate floors, glass partitions, led lighting, a specially commissioned commemorative plaque, a solid oak tasting table, and a dumb waiter.
The seven month project was completed on time and on budget. As always, what pleased us most was our client's satisfaction with a job well done. They have since gone on to recommend us for other projects, and we have further developed our long standing relationship with Roxburgh McEwan.
