Nice little garage and studio in an existing walled garden in Inverness. Just to show that I can do vernacular too!
Newly finished extension in Broadford . The original house was tight and narrow and missed out on the fabulous views. So we extended with a pitched roof to match , forming a fab upper studio with picture dormer to sea, and a contemporary wrap around glazed box to bring the panoramic views to the heart of the ground floor. So lovely to see this done and a holiday home changed to a fantastic forever home!
renovation and extension to a charming wee cottage. the cottage is being renovated with lime mortar and a red metal roof, leading into a light timber clad extension with extensive use of glazing to frame and embrace the views. The timber clad, zinc roofed extension is reached via a minimal glass link, and is settled into the landscape using a stone base. The elevations and fenestration are a direct response to the views from within , creating an apparently random exterior. The scale, detailing and materials are deliberately pared down to respond to and reflect the simple Scottish vernacular
deeview cottage was both a renovation of the existing cottage and sizeable contemporary extension . Use of a glazed link creates a respectful separation between old and new, and a modern contrasting approach but using local materials creates a bold new building which still fits well into its setting. The glazed corner opens to the views down the glen to the river dee.
