Lusta House Skye

Architect: rural design

Location: Isle of Skye, Western Isles

Loch Bay House Skye Lusta House Skye Lusta House Loch Bay

The house is on a spectacular site on the edge of a steep drop down to Loch Bay in North West Skye, with the view opening up to the islands of North Uist and Harris. Concerns about height required a low profile design, the monopitch roof and staggered plan is oriented south to draw the maximum amount of light into the deep plan.

The low energy design encompasses high levels of insulation and minimal heating. The external form is clad in scottish larch, and the roof is sunusoidal fibre cement sheeting.
