Maple Grange is a large, traditionally built, five bedroom, rendered house, constructed in or around 1910, with Corstorphine + Wright instructed to create a contemporary extension to the west elevation to incorporate a new double garage.
The design embraces the concept of living in the ‘great outdoors’ and clearly responds to local countryside architecture. With an intelligent and cohesive design approach we have united the conflicting rural and modern influences of the dwellings location and the client’s expectation.
Utilising a simple, contemporary style, the design solution provides a counterpoint between the traditional dwelling and the new wing by emphasising the simple building elements of roof, wall and glass. The elevations of the old and the new work harmoniously, creating a roofline which respects the existing scale and pitch.
