House at Borreraig

Dualchas Architects

The intention was to create a calm, contemplative space for our client to escape the city. To keep the building low to the skyline it was broken up into three separate elements: living, bedrooms and studio. A natural bowl in the landscape was turned into a lochan, becoming the focal point of the views and increasing the sense of tranquillity. Materials reflect the surrounding landscape. The larch rainscreen gives a crisp external finish. Internally the building has a simple palette of Caithness stone and oak.
