The modest stone built dwelling has been greatly extended by larch clad living spaces and adjoining garage, which wrap around the property to form a sheltered courtyard.
In a statement the practice said: “The existing croft has been renovated and extended to create a sustainable, contemporary family home. The design retains the existing building as its focal point, with contemporary additions placed behind, to the side and stepped down from it; the overall arrangement is that of a farm courtyard.
“The dwelling is orientated to take best advantage of the sun’s path and to provide fine views. The new structure, connected to the existing cottage by a glazed link, uses natural slate, Scottish larch cladding and dry stone base courses.”
Gallabog Croft is located around half a mile from Largue, Aberdeenshire.
