RAVELSTON, EDINBURGH

A sunny, but underutilized Ravelston front garden is converted into useful and attractive outdoor space by the deployment of a rectangular diagonal design theme combined with a curvilinear design theme.

A deck placed diagonally to the house to direct the eye away from the bedrooms on the other side of the road is built over and focuses on a pool fed by a dramatic waterfall.

By moving down to excavate the pool and up by raising the deck, the garden now has real 3D appeal rather than flat as it was before.

A bold, tubular metal screen, reminiscent of Victorian filigree work separates the garden from the drive, in sympathy with the buildings excellent architectural features.
