A small listed gem of a building by Robert Watt, dating from 1888, that has been brought back from almost complete dereliction by a caring and considerate owner.  

The small single-domed Meter House comprises of only 96sqm and took four years to resurrect through three phases of construction. This involved considerable research and study by the architectural design team into the original interior detailing and finishes. 

The project included renovation and replacement of the existing terracotta decorative panels externally; installation of a new lead clad roof structure; commissioning a new cast iron and hand painted glass dome; the reintroduction of ornate plaster detailing to the roof and intricately detailed timber panelling to the walls; new double glazed windows with a particularly intriguing curved fenestration detail.
