Edinburg-based artist Alison Watt, recipient of a Order of the British Empire award, was in the market for a live work space to foster her painting career. Watt enlisted fellow Edinburgian Helen Lucas Architects to tackle he renovation of a Georgian townhouse, a project that would result in a space that both focused Watt on her art and managed to frame the classic Georgian details of the home through a modern lens. Considered design choices, like seamless Corian countertops in the kitchen to endure both pasta sauce and paint and a creative pursuit of natural light lend the space a balance between modern utility and classical flourishes.
