Abbotsmeadow, Gattonside, Scottish Borders

Abbotsmeadow is a “C” listed detached Georgian villa situated in Gattonside, near Melrose.  The three storey extension to the rear was constructed using Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICT) basement walls with a steel frame to support the high level cantilevered stonework. SIPS panels infilled the steel primary support with precast beam and block suspended floors and feature vaulted timber roof including an apex glazed lantern.  The facades comprised of open jointed rubble stonework, slate cladding and large feature glazing.

The project received a commendation in 2015 from the Saltire Society Housing Design Awards.
