Lusta House Skye

The house is on a spectacular site on the edge of a steep drop down to Loch Bay in North West Skye, with the view opening up to the islands of North Uist and Harris. Concerns about height required a low profile design, the monopitch roof and staggered plan is oriented south to draw the maximum amount of light into the deep plan.

The low energy design encompasses high levels of insulation and minimal heating. The external form is clad in scottish larch, and the roof is sunusoidal fibre cement sheeting.

House no 7 on Tiree
This restoration and extension of a ruined, B-listed, Tiree black-house effectively provides two houses within a single curtilage. The extensions follow the spirit of local agricultural buildings in their materials, roof forms and particularly in the use of corrugated cladding.
