The two houses at Camustianavaig are sited on a former camping site near Portree on the Isle of Skye, the site has previously been terraced in to flat platforms. The new house works with the “new” topography and beds itself into the step with upper and lower levels.

The site is bounded on three sides by mature trees with views to Raasay to the south west.

The dwelling is a simple volume sitting on a random rubble plinth, the scale appear relatively minimal to the public road, however opens up to the view to the private side of the house. The upper level on the third floor is cantilevered over the lower level to maximize the benefit of sunlight & views, and opens onto a south facing roof terrace.
