Situated in Lasswade which  stands on the sides of the valley of the River North Esk, six miles south east of the centre of Edinburgh and less than a mile from the city’s bypass. The name seems to come from the Old English leas gewaed, meaning “the ford by the meadow”.

 

This Lasswade extension has been designed to be used as a Dining room and has Bi-fold doors on every elevation which fold all the way back making a open dining area situated just off the Kitchen and is situated in a beautifully kept formal gardens.

The steel frame structure is hidden behind powder coated grey coloured aluminium cladding, the flat roof is sealed using Firestone rubber roofing product and the roof has a large decorative roof light in the centre providing amble daylight.

 

High performance glass and roof insulation.

Bi-fold doors all round.

Large 3m Glazed roof light.

 

The wrap-around platform and steps help frame the building, giving the structure a little drama, this helps it to compete with the beautiful traditional detached property and gardens.
