Winner Scottish Home Awards 2013

by Dev Direct on July 6, 2013

Zinc Developments are genuinely delighted just to be recognised as a finalist for this award considering the competition we were up against but actually to go on to win Scotland’s best Showhouse is one of the true high points of our careers.

We deliberated so uncompromisingly in trying to create something that bit different without being too ‘out there’ and my team are all chuffed at how the final scheme works from all angles of originality and practicality.

The show home we created at Mavisbank Grange doesn’t rely purely on ‘overdressing’ to make it feel special, but instead, extremely simple yet effective design details were introduced to compliment the actual positive features of the spaces which include the natural light and vaulted ceilings in the hall, lounge and kitchen- all spaces that the owner will spend more quality time in socializing with friends and family.

We particularly like the way the curved kitchen island was designed to focus the cook towards the glazed wall with a picture-book view of the garden. The bespoke textured slate wall was introduced to the entrance hall and run continuously through into the bathroom which adds a touch of drama and unpredictability to the space.

Mavisbank Grange has been a great success and being a small bespoke company, we feel that our attention to design and detailing are felt throughout the showhome. We were extremely conscious to avoid to the feeling of mass repetitive building which we feel we have succeeded in and we are proud to of created this small oasis in the heart of Midlothian.

Design Director
