Elmhill

David Murray Associates

This project focused on the conversion of Elmhill House (1862), a grade B listed former mental hospital designed by William Ramage to form 31 residential apartments. New residential accommodation in the form of 6 apartment blocks and 10 town houses was constructed within the grounds of Elmhill House. The formal site layout retained significant landscape features and arranged the townhouses and flats to maximise the outlook of residents to the existing mature landscape setting. The site layout provides a strong controlling geometry which suits the formally symmetry of Elmhill House and incorporates a new formal garden.
