Denizen Works think big for Loch Awe-inspiring country house
January 22 2018
The House at Loch Awe is a seven-bedroom family home including large entertainment spaces and a double-height entrance hall with room for an 18ft Christmas tree within a structure which channels everything from brochs and tower houses to Mackintosh.
In a statement the architects wrote: “The house is designed around a central double-height hall enclosed by a protective inhabitable wall containing the primary accommodation. The sensitive west elevation is kept narrow with living and dining spaces having the prime views while the house stretches across the landscape to make the most of the southern sun with the two-storey bedroom wing.”
Landscaping is inspired by the rugged landscapes of castles with a largely exposed wild space with plans to introduce a woodland, a games room to provide shelter from the west coast climate and a bridge to a small lochan on the east of the 104-acre site.
Detailed design work is still underway on the property, which is finished largely in rough harling with small areas of green slate. A start on-site is expected by the end of the year.
