New Entrance & Ancillary Spaces

Posted

A detached family dwelling in the Scottish Borders sees New Entrance & Ancillary Spaces progress to give a greater sense of arrival to the property where once the entrance was obscured.

 

The scope of works includes: a timber clad garage extension; new entrance porch to accommodate the trappings of a busy family life with generous, separate coat and boot stores; increased glazing to the house with a glazed gable to the side; and a ‘Green’ roof.

Side extension to include double garage, entrance Porch, enhanced Hallway, new storage & glazing upgrade

The existing hipped roof has been altered to a glazed gable to make the most of the spectacular views across Peebles.

The ‘Green’ Roof adds an area of low maintenance Sedum planting with benefits to biodiversity; aiding rainwater management, air quality, sound absorption; and helps enhance the lifespan of the roof structure; whilst providing an area of natural greenery in the foreground of the view from the glazed gable.
