Lucky 13 for Harris
September 22 2008
A spokesperson for Anderson Associates said: ”We were keen not to build inappropriately within the existing isolated village vernacular pattern. The development is cut into the hillside utilising retaining wall technology. The form of the development has been influenced by the topography and the clients’ brief requiring a modern translation of an historic blackhouse form. This has resulted in utilisation of natural materials including local stone, natural slate and external Cedar boarding giving a low maintenance characteristic required by the client. “
The development comprises a three bedroomed dwelling together with bathrooms, kitchen and utility spaces, lounge and basement accommodation. The master bedroom is located within the first floor of the circular construction with exposed roof trusses.
Views from the development as a whole provide panoramic vistas over the Atlantic Ocean.
