Uig house Skye

A challenge was set with this project: to design a two storey modern building on an elevated site in Uig, Skye, which could exploit the views, yet be unobtrusive. A decision was made to clad the building in larch, so that when the timber weathered, the building would blend in to the colours of the surrounding hillside.

Uig House

The large area of glazing to the front is given protection from the summer sun by a steel and timber trellis. This also incorporates a deck at ground level, which extends out from the two bedrooms and central study, and a balcony at first floor level, accessed from the kitchen. From here the owner can view Uig bay, and watch the arrival and departure of the Outer Isles ferries. The dining and living area is open to the kitchen, with a solid oak floor and shelving bringing warmth into the interior.
