Converted Steading

Converted Steading
Located in rural Aberdeenshire, this conversion was a redundant farm steading converted into a modern day family home.
By considering the existing steading and the views from the site the design has worked with the existing building.

By heightening the central section a useable upstairs has been formed while retaining the vernacular form. The two small extensions have a contemporary take on traditional forms.

The external palette features a mixture of natural materials, locally sourced where possible from sustainable sources. Materials include Scottish larch cladding, natural slate and existing stone.

Through preserving the use of the site for future generations and keeping the story going, we believe that the proposals create a dwelling with a real sense of place. The existing steading, along with alterations sits well with the landscape and provides stunning views across open countryside all round.
