For this contemporary new build on the isle of Arran, the design driver was to maximise the sea views for our clients. They wanted to feel connected to the seascape and to see the ever changing picture while they went about their everyday living. We therefore agreed that the main living spaces should be on the first floor with the bedrooms on the lower floor. This allowed us great design freedom when designing the open plan spaces of the first floor.
We were able to minimise circulation space and create a flowing, open-plan living space with generous dining and kitchen areas all working together. The living space also opens onto a covered veranda where one can relax or dine. This plan allowed us to create generous bedroom spaces on the floor below.
