5' 35' at Craignish

5' 35' at Craignish
The site was a rocky outcrop with a view to the west. It is subject to south westerly gales, although the gardens contain many fine trees, and specimen bamboos.

A modern house was required with a principal bedroom and en suite, three other bedrooms, a large kitchen, and a living /dining area.

The site was near Craignish Castle, and Historic Scotland required to be consulted. The planners were sympathetic as the building could not be seen from the castle.

The building nestles into the rocky outcrop, sheltering from the wind, with the principal rooms off a glazed enfilade commanding the view. The roof steps to reflect the contours and allows a generous volume to the kitchen, while the internal stair is matched with external steps, linking the building to its environment.
