Planning secured for Morar residence
January 26 2012
Designed by Raw Architecture Workshop the home will be sited on a steeply sloping site, allowing the structure to take advantage of the thermal mass of the ground whilst offering open vistas toward the isles of Eigg, Rum and Skye.
Custom designed for a local deep sea diver and primary school head the residence has been conceived to provide optimal sunset views over nearby islands.
With that in mind the house has been laid out in an ‘upside down’ manner, with living spaces on the top floor, bedrooms at mid level and reception accommodation on the lower floor.
Clad in black stained timber, sourced from sutainably managed Forestry Commission land, the property will adopt a prefabricated timber panel construction process to minimise on site exposure.
Landscaping work has already commenced on site with construction penciled in for mid 2012 to complete by early 2013.
