Tigh na Croit

HLM Architects Ltd

Tigh na Croit, nestles quietly into an area of former crofting land. The fully certified, award winning, Passivhaus creates high quality contemporary, low energy, environmentally responsible house which takes highland and rural design as inspiration whilst achieving the PH standard to drive down energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

We proposed a contemporary architectural solution where the scale, proportion, openings, roof pitch and mix of materials are all contextually relevant to the rural landscape. The house was designed specifically for the site and demonstrates confidence, articulation and design quality to create a high quality, low energy design looking towards new successful precedents of rural, Highland Housing.
