Linsiadar House lies just across Loch Ceann Hulabhig from the stone circle of Calanais on the west coast of Lewis. re-inhabiting the site as to regenerate its best characteristics, its robust, sculptural form reaches back beyond the chequered local history of imported kits and “white-houses” to ancient indigenous dwellings. relatively organic forms with falling ridges responded to tapering plans beneath. This drops an anchor into the landscape.
