Ardrishaig House, western Scotland – design by APD Architecture

The Sheiling, Ardrishaig
Location: Lochgilphead, Argyll, west Scotland
Design: APD Architecture
Contemporary House in Argyll
The Sheiling is a Victorian villa sitting between two waterways; Loch Fyne on one side and the Crinan Canal on the other, with views of the loch and Arran in the distance beyond.
Within the house several internal walls and a portion of the gable wall were removed to create an open-plan living and kitchen space, opening into a new extension. The new and old buildings are recognisably related, the extension working as an open and outward facing younger sibling, its roof echoing the pitch of the existing roofline. Walls and roof are wrapped in staggered panels of dark grey zinc and large glazed panels are supported by slim vertical fins, allowing for expansive views to the sea and sky.
A previously dilapidated house has been renovated throughout, with new building services and insulation, and double glazed windows.
