Moxon unveil banked Deeside home
February 5 2016
Strachan House takes the form of a linear sequence of volumes each at a slight angle to the next in order to frame and shelter a courtyard entrance. Each room is connected directly to the next by living spaces to reduce the need for corridors.
Built on top of a drystane granite terrace the bulk of the home is finished in untreated timber with large picture windows offering expansive views over the water of Feugh, all of which sits below a zinc roofline angled in parallel with the slope of the hill.
Architect Scott Gibb commented: “This house is the product of a number of constraints, which we have enjoyed exploring immensely. Material selection and the compact nature of internal spaces mean that this house is working incredibly hard for the owners.”
