The Contemporary collection was used to enhance the scandic look of the idyllic property.


Glencairn has concluded this highly innovative townhouse development at Liberton Brae, a sought-after secluded area of the city of Edinburgh overlooking the Royal Observatory and Liberton Tower. The outstanding design and finish of these properties made Glencairn the proud winners for Innovation in Design award at the Scottish Home awards. A representative from Glencairn stated that "at Glencairn we put Design at the forefront of everything we do and it is great to be recognised for this with the Innovation in Design Award." Glencairn Properties are an independent family owned Scottish property development company specialising in contemporary, luxury urban homes that exceed expectations.


At Atkinson & Kirby we are very proud to have supplied our Manoa Oak Plank from our Contemporary collection. This floor was selected to compliment the interior scandic look and feel of the main living areas of this attractive development. The properties are a contemporary interpretation of an existing agricultural barn within a collection of converted steading buildings next to a B-listed 19th century farmhouse.


Atkinson & Kirby’s Manoa Oak Plank enhances the light, spacious and airy interiors. It runs through the entrance hallway which extends past the internal courtyard that has framed views through a stone wall out to the countryside. Living and dining areas in which the Manoa Oak is installed also benefit from a vaulted ceiling, internal courtyard and floor to ceiling glazing. The spacious and innovative design mixed with the use of natural light and materials such as attractive areas of real wood flooring, natural stone and large glazed areas give the properties a luxurious modern feel whilst sympathising with the original heritage of the site.


Ffion Hughes, from the Marketing Team at Atkinson & Kirby said: “The Manoa Oak white stained plank flooring supplied for Liberton Tower Mains has worked in harmony with designer’s palette and other innovative design choices. We have enjoyed working with LBA Architects and Glencairn on this project".
