Lochalsh Housing

Project Completed.

The 24 houses for a sensitive site at Burnside in Plockton explore a richer typology than normally found in the typical semi detached landscape often found on the edge of rural settlements.

The use of different housing forms – the terrace, lean-to and barn – create a layout reminiscent of historical rural patterns, in particular the drying Barns found in nearby Duirinish, and throughout Wester Ross.
