The Isle of Tiree, the westernmost island in the Inner Hebrides, an archipelago off the west coast of Scotland, is accessible from the mainland only by ferry from Oban or by air from Glasgow airport, resulting in inevitable logistical and economic complications for the construction project. The project draws inspiration from the imagery of everything on the island, its constructions and compositional traditions and the types and forms of furnishings which have been consolidated over the years and become the little island’s strong point. The architect manages to preserve the memory of the old cottage in a structure which is very close to the sensibilities of today’s lifestyles.
The architecture is characterised by a mix of both a traditional black house and agricultural steadings all integrated into the landscape. The house has won an RIAS award, an RIBA National Award, Grand Designs Home of the Year 2014, a Scottish Design Award and a Saltire Housing Award 2014.
