The house is a multiple family residence which strives to harmonise Scottish and Islamic traditions. It consists of two wings connected by a glazed foyer containing a feature stair overlooking both east and west towards the wooded surroundings and the entrance courtyard. The design takes advantage of the site's topography to set the swimming pool and garage accommodation into the embankment, forming a semi-exposed plinth on which the house sits.
The project won 'Best House in the UK' at the International Property Awards in 2012 and was shortlisted for 'Best House in the World'.
