Ravelston Garden

Summary
Ravelston Garden is a 1930s Art Deco development of residential buildings, between Craigleith Avenue North and South, in the suburb of Ravelston in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. It was designed by Andrew Neil and Robert Hurd, 1935–36, and consists of three white-harled International Style blocks of 4-storey flats. They were originally known as the Jenners flats, who were the managing agents. Ravelston Garden is a category A listed building. The Edinburgh volume of the Buildings of Scotland series describes them as "Less stylish but more serious-minded". Architectural historian Charles McKean describes them as "Jaunty blocks of international style flats on a butterfly plan, complete with roof gardens, canopies, balconies and curving garages. Particularly clever design incorporating up-to-date labour saving devices. Must have caused quite a stramash amidst the douce, opulent villas of the Dykes..."
