Borders Mill Conversion

Borders Mill Conversion
2015
A derelict and partially ruined watermill in the Scottish Borders has been carefully restored and rebuilt by Bergmark Architects to form a studio and family space ancillary to an existing cottage. The masonry base of the mill contains a workshop and storage spaces and a lightweight timber frame has been erected on top of the masonry containing the main living areas. The facades have been clad with burnt larch which provides a durable and low maintenance finish, the roof is slate covered and the mill masonry has been repaired and restored using traditional lime mortar.
