Skye House : another rural project by the same architects
This single storey holiday house sits on an unusually flat site overlooking a wild flower meadow that is populated by Deer during the evening.
The house is simply planned, kitchen, bathrooms, utility and entrance lobby are accommodated in a thick wall facing north, the occupied spaces all face south, connected by a simple top lit circulation route.Every effort is being made to minimise disruption between inside and out, floor to ceiling glazed openings maximise solar gain during the day, and will dissappear during the evening reinforcing the connection to outside.
Traditionally constructed including the re-use of stone already on the site, completion is targetted for february 2006.
Burnside, Plockton – a development of 24 houses in a sensitive site on the approach to Plockton in Rosshire (just before the school if you know the area).
The design is based on the layout of the settlement at Diurnish in Kyle, and will comprise a combination of terraces in render, and ‘barns’ in timber, stone and corrugated sheet. The buildings are low energy incorporating superinsulation.
Based on the principles of homezones the external spaces will be entirely shared surfaces, and incorporate novel ideas for traffic calming.
The client is Lochalsh and Skye Housing Association, an application for planning was lodged at the beginning of June.

Part of a study into the options available to alter and extend a 1 1/2 storey croft house overlooking Portree Harbour in Skye. An awkward triangular site, has created an unusual form which maximises aspect and views over the harbour, the extension is raised above the existing ground floor level to create additional privacy within the new living space. The new form will be constructed from traditional materials, including locally sourced oak. Completion 2006
