AN empty, briefing cottage on the outskirts of Edinburgh had little activity for it, but one brace recognised its potential
WHEN Warren and Gillian Kidd came beyond this cottage at 2 Norton Mains Cottages in Newbridge in 2011, the acreage had been on the bazaar for 18 months and no one lived in it. As Warren says: “The old cottage was in a ambrosial bad way. Gillian’s ancestor and mine, and my business partner, all looked at it and said, ‘Don’t do it.’”
The area was a key affairs point for the couple, however, as Newbridge sits on the western bound of Edinburgh, abutting to Edinburgh Airport, and that accessible drive into the burghal centre was appealing, as was the actuality the cottage was on one level. “Trying to get a single-level abode so abutting to Edinburgh was a challenge,” Warren admits.
The couple, who accept two children, Joseph, 15, and Sophie, 11, had tackled a few projects above-mentioned to accession here, but annihilation of this scale. To put this in context, the aboriginal cottage they bought was aloof 80 sq/m, and today’s abode measures 154 sq/m. From the alpha it was bright that the absolute cottage would charge to be adapted and continued to actualize the ancestors home the Kidds desired.
“We took the old cottage, bare it back, and started again,” says Warren, who co-owns the lighting aggregation Lampforce Ltd. “We admired the appearance of the cottage from the front, but it was about creating a new carapace central it.” All the floors were aerial and insulation was added afore the new floors were laid. New skirtings and architraves were installed to attending original.
Crucially, the attic plan was absolutely reworked. In its aboriginal form, the cottage was comprised of the area at the front, with a active room, kitchen, bath and box room. The architecture had been continued to the rear at some point to actualize what is now the adept bedchamber and bedchamber 3. The kitchen had ahead been at the advanced of the cottage (now bedchamber 2).
Today’s abode has four bedrooms, including the adept bedchamber and en-suite battery room, the active room, a ancestors bathroom, and the new accessible kitchen, dining and ancestors allowance with doors arch out assimilate a terrace.
While Warren and Gillian had the eyes for what the cottage could become, they bare addition to advice them realise it, and were advantageous to ascertain that one of their neighbours, John Ward, was a retired architect. “We formed on the affairs together,” Warren says. “John was there to adviser us; he took on our account and tweaked them to accomplish them assignment for architecture regulations.”
Remarkably because the calibration of the activity here, and the actuality that the old cottage was basically angry into a architecture site, the ancestors lived actuality throughout the work. “All four of us slept in what’s now the adept bedchamber and acclimated the third bedchamber as our active allowance for the aboriginal six months,” Warren recalls. It took 18 months afore the abode was absolutely “livable”.
If there is one amplitude in this abode that is affirmed to advertise 2 Norton Mains Cottages to the abutting buyer, it’s the new kitchen-dining-family room. “Having this affectionate of amplitude is a charge for us from now on,” Warren agrees. “ We’ve never had a allowance like this before; we absorb added time calm now than we did in our aftermost abode and we accept added interaction.”
When the brace were planning this extension, one affection was a charge for Warren: the continued window, which the glassy Hacker kitchen has been advised to frame. Warren spotted the abstraction on an adventure of Grand Designs area rather than a window the owners had congenital in a angle tank. “We didn’t alike apperceive what the kitchen would attending like at that point,” he says,” but I knew I capital this window.”
And this wasn’t the alone architecture accommodation the brace fabricated aboriginal on in the process. While on a cruise to London, they spotted the arresting lamp that now hangs abeyant over the dining table. Developed by Italian artist Stefano Traverso and bogus by Italamp, the ablaze appearance PVC strips in violet, aphotic grey, blooming and blush with Swarovski crystals activated to the ends of anniversary strip. “We bought this afore the addendum was congenital and the colours acclimated in this amplitude are based on that light,” Warren says.
The brace approached artist Colin Wong of Development Direct back allotment the kitchen, and Colin appropriate this automated Hacker architecture with Silestone worktops and with an Elica extractor over the island. “I had capital an American-style fridge-freezer but Colin steered us abroad from that and kept the focus on the window,” Warren explains. The brace defined the Contura woodburning stove, creating a cosy affection to this automated space, while Karndean attic offers a abundant attractive and applied finish.
There is a additional stove in the active room. “We looked at abacus a broiler here, but afresh we saw this slate asphalt accomplishment from Porcelanosa, which we were originally activity to use to clad the extension,” Warren says. “One night we were talking about it and I got the samples and laid them alongside the fire, and it worked.” The brace absitively to use the tiling to ascertain the chimneybreast, rather than externally.
This was one of the allowances of active in the abode through the project: Gillian and Warren were able to allegedly acknowledge to the spaces as they got to apperceive the house. “We’ve abstruse added from accomplishing this abode than we accept from any other,” Warren agrees. “Here we were starting from scratch, and things acquired as we went forth and became added modern.”
The bathrooms reflect this as the brace defined accessories and tiling from Porcelanosa. Warren additionally advised in the low-energy LED lighting throughout.
Asked whether he would do it all again, Warren says the brace would booty on addition project, but in a hardly altered way. “We’d alpha with a allotment of land,” he says. “It’s easier to build. Alike with the admeasurement of addendum that we congenital here, it didn’t booty as abundant time as accomplishing the advance assignment to the absolute cottage.”
This abode has apparent the ancestors how they appetite to alive now, with connected, open-plan active spaces, and with a abreast artful that’s both applied and stylish. Aback in 2011, no one, added than the Kidds, capital the tired, briefing old cottage. Back you accede today’s home, the transformation is staggering. n
