Drylaw House is a fine Georgian country house which has been enveloped by post war city expansion. Although it now sits within a local authority housing scheme, it retains a portion of landscaped gardens and is so hidden away that even many locals don’t know that it is there. The site offers peace, tranquillity and a sense of escaping to the country, despite being in the heart of the city. Cropka architects identified the opportunity to enhance the value of the property and in collaboration with GLM architects produced a feasibility study to prove a business case for a sensitive development of additional luxury accommodation within the property grounds.
