North Highland College UHI win Dornoch go-ahead
December 18 2017
This work will see a new 650sq/m stone and timber clad extension built to house a new extension and reception area together with a teaching space. This will plug directly into the house itself, which will be remodelled internally to offer more teaching and office space.
Michael Dougall, architect at Sheppard Robson, commented: “Our proposals seek to enhance the current experience at Burghfield House through the addition of a new teaching wing. The form of the extension is intentionally subservient to the existing house, however a new building frontage was required to welcome staff and students to the campus. Golf teaching spaces have been located above a new building entrance offering glimpses to the activity, so familiar to Dornoch, on arrival.”
The consolidated campus will gather together all of the UHI’s Dornoch operations on one site with the aim of improving connections with the local community.

Some odd perspective/scale issues happening here, or is the existing building very tall?

Was this perspective perhaps created by Dougall from Father Ted - still struggling with the difference between 'small' and 'far away'?
