Rural House, Highlands & Islands
This project for a 2 or 3 bedroom rural house was originally produced for a site in Uig, Isle of Lewis and could be easily adapted for a range of sites throughout the Highlands and Islands.

A projecting entrance porch opens into a double height space containing an oak lined staircase. The ground floor is an open plan space with the living area and kitchen/dining to each side of a dividing fireplace. Two generous double bedrooms with en suites occupy the first floor.

The simple elevations are generally render with timber cladding to the main elevation and set back windows creating sheltered external spaces. The slate roof is tight to the wallhead at the eaves to resist high wind speeds in the manner of traditional rural buildings (a similiar detail is used on the McKellar House - see the Architecture section of the website).

An optional third bedroom or study projects out from one gable and is clad externally in a contrasting material (e.g. corrugated black metal sheeting which is commonly used on more prosaic building types such as barns).

Size 116 sq m
Budget 120,000 / 171,400 Euro
