Islay cottage

A deft manipulation of an existing stone cottage, retaining the solidity and charm of the vernacular but extended with a contemporary vocabulary to meet the needs of a professional couple.

Clean and simple lines were the order of the day whilst the guts of the house were gently rearranged to allow the seamless integration of the extension. Engaging with the spectacular surrounding views, the super-insulated walls (existing and new) envelope a contemplative and meditative space where the outside can be enjoyed in security and warmth.
