Clive and Susan Andrew’s Art Deco-style home looks out over the Firth of Forth, its curved windows and white render reminiscent of an ocean liner.
The scheme replaced a Victorian property suffering from severe subsidence due to the sandy ground conditions. The couple therefore had to opt for piled foundations.
Rendered masonry outer walls enhance the thermal mass of the building, and an inner steel frame supports the curved element at second-floor level. Infill panels of timber frame, with zinc cladding on the upper levels, break up the facade of the house.
