House at Camusdarach Sands

RAW Architecture Workshop

The clients wanted a part-subterranean, new-build house on steeply sloping former rough grazing land that captured the spectacular sunrise over the mountains and sunset behind the islands. Given the topography of the site, our solution was to locate the living spaces on the upper portion of the plot, with sleeping accommodation and entry level below.

Construction is low tech, consisting of an exposed concrete base, sitting beneath the more expressive timber frame superstructure. The final external colour was much debated and in the end black was chosen to tune into the characteristics of the peat, gorse and stormy skies.
