New Plockton Houses in Lochalsh
West Coast of Scotland Homes by rural design architects, Scotland
7 Aug 2010
Architect: rural design
Location: Lochalsh, Ross-Shire, Western Isles
This Lochalsh residential property project is completed.
The 24 houses for a sensitive site at Burnside in Plockton explore a richer typology than normally found in the typical semi detached landscape often found on the edge of rural settlements.
The use of different housing forms – the terrace, lean-to and barn – create a layout reminiscent of historical rural patterns, in particular the drying Barns found in nearby Duirinish, and throughout Wester Ross.

A mix of materials, stone, harl, timber, slate and corrugated sheeting further explore the rich variety of form commonly found in a highland setting.

Contemporary Property in the Scottish Highlandsk
Brown + Brown’s approach sees the creation of a concrete plinth, with a single-storey black timber volume placed upon it, in order to reduce the potential ridge height of the building. The proposed house creates an unashamedly contemporary, yet complimentary, addition to the landscape.

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.
