Of the Hill
West Coast, Scotland

A new build house on the West Coast of Scotland

Project Description

A house which sits within a hillside overlooking the dramatic coastline of the west of Scotland. We have been working closely with engineers Design Engineering Workshop and Landscape Architects Dan Pearson Studio to design a house made of the prevailing materials of the landscape. The house acts as a lens to capture the incredible views which the Scottish Highlands have to offer while being made of simple, robust and elegant materials.

A stone wall emerges from the hillside among the existing rock formations. This wall forms an enclosed garden which in turn will allow local flora to be grown in a relatively protected and warm environment, even on the exposed hillside location.

Work on site is presently underway, with completion in 2025.
