A contemporary garden room extension to a Grade B listed property in the conservation village of Colinton, Edinburgh
The proposed alterations included major internal and external wall removals to create an open plan kitchen / dining space with connection to the existing south facing garden. In order to maximise the view of the garden from the dining area a steel structure was constructed to form a cantilevered roof section. The copper cladding is a high quality material that complements the existing Arts and Craft house.

A new contemporary dining room extension to a property in Craiglockhart with an adjoining workshop. Works are currently on site to be completed Spring 2015.
The project involves the complete renovation and extending of an existing 1930's bungalow in Juniper Green, Edinburgh. The rear single storey extension has been designed in a contemporary form with large expanses of glass to connect the house with the garden and also provide unobstructed views of the Pentland Hills beyond.
The attic conversion has been designed as a two bedroom conversion with one en-suite shower room. Two dormer windows at the front and back maximise the head height in each room with the rear dormer having floor to ceiling doors to form a small roof top terrace/ balcony.
The main emphasis of this design has been to push the maximum potential out of the property but also sticking to the originally specified client budget.
Once the project has been completed in Spring 2015 the property will be a stunning family home.
MDA Studio have designed a contemporary Kitchen extension to a stone built property in Craiglockhart, Edinburgh. The brief was to demolish an existing damp and dark outbuilding and design a new modern, bright contemporary kitchen dining space. The use of larch timber cladding and smooth white render, combined with triple glazed aluminium windows create a modern, efficient space. The project was completed late 2014.
The project involves the construction of a new two storey side extension and garage with study area above in the Conservation Area of Colinton Village. The extension and garage have been designed to complement the existing architecture using the same palette of materials and building forms. One of the complications with the development is building close to a boundary with large neighbouring trees (protected in a conservation area).
The project started on site January 2015 with the aim to be completed late Spring 2015.
internal alterations to an existing terraced dwelling house in morningside to create a large open plan kitchen / dining space at the rear of the property with direct access to the garden and the installation of a new en-suite shower room in the existing maid’s room at first floor.
the property will also benefit from new high efficiency double glazed timber sash and case windows and external railings reinstated to match what would have been existing.
the project has recently been lodged to city of edinburgh council for planning and conservation area consent.
This contemporary extension was designed in response to a typical 1930’s semi-detached Edinburgh bungalow not suiting the needs of a young family.
The brief was to create a contemporary open plan kitchen / living / dining which connected with the garden. The use of oak sliding doors and high level slot windows flood the space with daylight and the central 'spine' wall that splits the kitchen/dining space from the living space acts as a storage wall and also contains all AV equipment and wood burning stove.
The project was completed 2012.
This contemporary home built on a loch side in a rural setting in northern ireland was designed to meet the client’s brief to maximise the loch views and to sit comfortably within the landscape.
The client approached MDA Studio with a brief for there to be more natural daylight / sunlight in the existing kitchen / dining room. The proposal was to design a large opening in the existing roof structure to allow for the installation of 4No. bespoke electronic rooflights.
The large roof well created in the kitchen space dramatically increases the ceiling height and improves the feeling of space and light.
A dwelling house located in the a rural setting in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland was designed in a simple style and form to comply with the clients tastes and respecting the Northern Ireland rural design guidelines for new dwelling houses.
The dwelling has a traditional frontage orientated towards the panoramic views out over the landscape. A large living area which is connected visually with the kitchen / dining opens out onto an enclosed patio area providing a safe area for the family to play. The living area has a higher floor level, vaulted ceiling and larger windows to create the feeling of space and to make the most of the views. On the ground floor there is also a second living room, study, playroom and utility room.
On the first floor are located the main bedrooms with the first floor landing enjoying the light and volume of a double height space looking over the ground floor entrance.
This project involves adding additional floor space to an existing kitchen / dining area to a property in Pencaitland, East Lothian. The proposed extension has been designed using a simple palette of materials to create a small contemporary ' garden room' extension.
The low level window height and slot window on the side elevation allow for views out to the garden from a seating position while also maintaining privacy from the existing living area.
Works are due to commence on site Spring 2015.
