This new house in the Conservation Area of Findhorn in Moray saw the demolition of a delapidated and unsympathetically altered cottage and constrcution of a new 3 bedroom house that seeks to echo the strong traditional forms and materials within the village while offering a contemporary vision and updated take on the local vernacular. A distinct palette of materials including traditional lime render, larch cladding, slate and zinc roofing all contribute towards a home ideal for modern living whilst being sympathetic to its historic context.
Set within a very tight site with limited access, the project proved to be a real challenge to design and build, but has ultimately conquered these hurdles to provide a fantastic home within a beautiful area.
