Dovecot Park

This project involved remodelling a house in the Edinburgh neighbourhood of Colinton. It has fabulous views south over Colinton Dell, towards the Pentland hills, and it is easy to believe you are in remote countryside when you look out of the frameless glass box bay of the new master bedroom. Incidentally, when the original house was being built, one of its labourers would go on to become very famous indeed: Sean Connery.
