A large extension to double the size of an existing gardeners cottage within a farm curtilage in East Lothian.
The design shifts the axis of the cottage to improve its situation with the landscape, a new entrance is formed within the west gable to front onto the farm courtyard and all boundaries to the south and east are removed to provide an open relationship with the fields and woodland. This provides a sheltered south-facing aspect for the main living space.
The construction uses a cross-laminated solid timber panel clad in stained timber and a polished concrete internal wall that is stone faced externally. A zinc roof sits atop the 10m long hardwood clerestorey window.
The house has been featured extensively in Grand Designs Magazine (6/18) and Homes & Interiors Scotland (7-8/18).
