House on Scottish Island

Scotland

The new country house is located on an extensive estate and is situated within the general context of the west coast of Scotland’s National Scenic Area.

The core of the house, a listed monument, is part of the distant views visible from the sea and over the years has fallen into disrepair.  The proposals involve the addition of a substantial east and west wing to the original house.

The design of the extensions use the language of Modern Traditional Architecture and the time honoured character of Scottish Vernacular. The use of traditional materials such as scored render and stone are employed in the design of the additions. This ensures harmony and continuation of the existing building and its relationship with the immediate surroundings which is complementary to, but not a servile copy of, the existing house.  The interiors of the house are designed in collaboration with Louise Jones.
