Private Clients | Perthshire, Scotland 2020

This proposal draws directly on the natural landform of its Highland Perthshire site, emulating the three distinct burn lines flowing down the face of the hillside on which it is located while making use of natural stone and softly curved planted roofs to replicate the rolling linear forms of the landscape. Three volumes are arranged to suit the views across Loch Lyon and the path of the sun.

The clustered plan provides a sheltered external space facing the hillside where the three principle ‘fingers’ of the building meet, defining the entrance area with a connecting volume beneath a secondary planted roof. In turn the three finger volumes contain kitchen and utility spaces, double height living and dining spaces, bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms. A separate glazed cabin is set into the promontory to the west – exploiting the remarkable natural viewpoint for observing sunsets across the loch.
