Kilchrenan

McInnes Gardner & Partners

The sloping site for this modern house overlooking Loch Awe inspired the new roofscape. Below the soaring oversailing roof planes hangs a glass box and suspended tray balcony. Open-plan with fully glazed elevations to the loch view at first floor and a lower floor opening onto a large paved patio terminating with a modern 'haha'. Although minimalist in spirit, the selected pallette of materials and colours offers camouflage to minimise visual disturbance in the landscape, particularly when viewed from afar. Technology includes underfloor system, ground source heat pump and recovery ventilation.
