Old Town Edinburgh map

This Is Edinburgh. Forget the coast, the New Town and the urban sprawl. These days the city boundaries may stretch from Queensferry to Joppa along the Forth and south into the Pentland Hills but when you re talking about the original, medieval Edinburgh, the Old Town is it. It’s not possible to say when the first fortification was built on Castle Rock – there are hints of human occupation going back to the late Bronze Age – but it’s widely accepted that there was some sort of castle by the late 11th century at the highest, rocky and westernmost…

Home Design London

Sometimes home is more than just a house; when you’re friends with your neighbors – old and young – and love your local shops and pub, that sense of home can expand to include your whole neighborhood. So when photographer Jenny Lewis and her husband Duncan Western, of film company Splice, moved to this dignified Georgian terrace 10 years ago, they were only relocating here from the next street. With a baby on the way they needed a family-friendly house, but were loathe to leave the hip neighborhood of Haggerston (in the East London district of Hackney)…

Edinburgh New Town map

Prosperity in Scotland during the 1700 s, combined with wealth consequent to considerable political power now enjoyed by Scots in Parliament in London, led to an explosion of new building. At that time the Old Town was overcrowded, noisy and dirty. Visitors said they could smell Edinburgh as they appraoched Dalkieth some 8 miles to the South. Lack of proper drainage and generally insanitary conditions caused ill-health. It is no wonder that plans were made to build a new Edinburgh, and the site that was chosen was just to the North on a long low…

Architect, Designer

I have a degree in Architecture and was in the field for about 8 years. Ok first, you need to clarify if you are referring to a designer who is a licensed architect, or something more like a home designer. A home designer is a guy like you or me who just knows the ins and outs of building a home. He doesn t even need a degree. There are legal restrictions on what size and type of building he can build. He can t seal a set of plans. He might put a designed seal on his plans but it s unofficial and not recognized by any organization. The buildings…

Historic Edinburgh

The Old Town Edinburgh’s oldest district lies in the center and is home to Edinburgh Castle and many other famous landmarks. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this medieval maze of ‘wynds’ (the local name for the narrow streets between buildings) is a huge draw with tourists. At the heart of the Old Town is the Royal Mile boulevard, which English writer Daniel Defoe once described as “perhaps the largest, longest, and finest street for buildings and number of inhabitants in the world”. The Royal Mile has four different segments – Castlehill…
