- New Recruits
HLA are delighted to have received Planning Permission for an attic extension at a house in the Coltbridge and Wester Coates Conservation Area. The property was previously extended for the same owners by Helen Lucas Architects in 2009.
HLA are delighted to have received Planning permission and Listed Building Consent for the renovation and change of use of a C-listed mews house in the Dean Conservation Area, Edinburgh.
The dilapidated garage space is to be insulated and converted into a spacious one-bed home. A new opening to the rear reveals the stunning backdrop of the Dean Village and Water of Leith.
Originally designed as a row of stables in the late 19th Century, our proposal strives to retain the character of the original timber coach doors. A contemporary adaptation of the street elevation provides clerestory light, a hidden window concealed by a shutter, and a new place to sit and enjoy the sun.
Architects from Helen Lucas Architects were on hand at Edinburgh's Ingleby Gallery to give behind the scenes tours of areas of the gallery that are usually closed to the general public.
Helen Lucas Architects created the gallery in the building that formerly housed The Venue, an infamous nightclub on Calton Road. A dramatic new staircase has been introduced between the floors giving a discreet, hidden and beautiful route between the three floors of the building.
