PRIVATE HOUSES:

Private House, Pittrichie, Aberdeenshire

The walled garden in Aberdeenshire is enclosed on all four sides by a tall stone wall and mature trees. Planning negotiations requested a modern building that would be hidden from outside the walled garden.

The design is a single storey building in a cruciform plan shape creating 4 wings of accommodation: garage, bedroom, living and guest. The large open plan kitchen/dining/lounge at the centre joins all of the wings and functions as the heart of the home.

The low rise sedum roof helps the building to disappear into the site whilst Solar photovoltaic panels provide much of the house’s electricity needs. Large folding glass doors in living and bedrooms areas open onto expansive decking, sheltered under a timber brise soleil. Externally the house is clad in natural stone and a cream render. The result is a modern sleak house with high quality finishes.
