The roof is a wonderful retreat for the family who live in this sea-front home.

Our proposal is for a contemporary intervention to enhance this, bringing the property up to the same height as its neighbours. Daylight will stream down the hidden stair, offering a glimpse of what is above, before the family arrive in the new glass box on the roof. This reaching up and out is celebrated in the structure which rises up through the stair well and then creates a roof from which the glass is hung. The clients are looking forward to enjoying the view from their rooftop retreat, perhaps with a glass of wine!

Douglas Strachan is a Chartered Architect specialising in contemporary self-build houses and high quality extensions, regeneration and community projects, in Midlothian, Edinburgh and beyond. Many people dream of a bespoke house and having a direct involvement in its design and construction. As all projects are unique, achieving this requires a bespoke service from dedicated design professionals. Design is essentially a decision making process, which relies on a productive dialogue and expert advice. Douglas Strachan provides this through a process of sharing images, sketching and discussion, leading to the development of a personalised brief and bespoke designs. As the project moves forward, they can also provide traditional services, such as making applications for statutory consents and preparing technical information for construction. The most successful projects also benefit from professional oversight and payment certification during the construction phase
