Private House, Kilsyth

ARM Architects LLP

A large detached dwelling designed for a family with a disabled child. The dwelling is split level on a steeply sloping site with a southerly aspect. The house commands uninterupted views over the Kelvin valley and the Forth and Clyde canal. The house is designed to be able to function in 2 parts, i.e. the main family wing and the self-contained child's wing, which incorporates accommodation for professional carers. One door connects the two elements allowing it to function as one complete dwelling or as two should the parents require respite. The size of the house is broken down into several distinct volumes so as to reduce the visual impact on such a prominent site.
