Almondhill Farm Cottage

Part of a group of farm buildings outside Kirkliston, this 1.5 storey cottage had been insensitively extended in the 1970s with a large, boxy, single storey extension to the rear. The intent was to increase the accommodation with a sensitive remodelling that replaced the original extension with something that sat comfortably with the traditional character of the farm cottages. Internally however, the need was for contemporary, open living spaces that exploited the exceptional views that had gone unseen up to now.
